Why White Squirrel? We've been in the library and book distribution business for over 15 years, so we know books and media! We're nestled in the mountains of western North Carolina and take pride in our service. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions! But really, why the name "White Squirrel Books"? In our neck of the woods, near Brevard, North Carolina, we are home to a special squirrel: the white squirrel! They are not albino squirrels, as they have dark eyes and long lives, but they are certainly a unique animal!
