Leo Weiskircher was a special guest of the Corcoran Rotary Club last Thursday, reporting to the organization in the Business to Business section of the luncheon meeting. He talked about Weisacre’s Used Books, which he has operated in Corcoran since 2004. Weiskircher noted that he carries all types of books, from popular novels to children’s books. His store can also provide out-of-print books and rare volumes that come his way. The store also plans a children’s reading hour on Saturdays, once a month. On his racks of thousands of books are plenty of science fiction, mystery, biography and animal volumes. Both paperbacks and hardback books are available.
Weiskircher, who will be 81 years old this month, said he plans to be in business for many more years at 1160 Chase Ave. A native of Los Angeles, he spent much of his life in Southern California. Weiskircher was in the U.S. Navy for four years and lists membership in the American Legion. He is a former member of the Optimist Club.
His favorite Corcoran business is New China Restaurant. He enjoys their food and service–and their floats in the annual Cotton Parade.
