Longtime Geneva residents, Roxanne and Chuck Osborne, have always had a love of books and book shops, and a greater love for their family, including their loyal Bernese Mountain dog, Harvey. They wanted to do something in their retirement years that kept them active in the community and gave them a sense of purpose. Since reading is one of their passions and independent bookshops naturally foster a community vibe, they knew this would be ideal for their early retirement adventures. Thus, Harvey’s Tales was born! The Osborne’s vision for Harvey’s Tales is to create a welcoming environment that inspires the community to come together to learn, explore, escape and relax through books and other diversions.
