All employees can be reached at their regular e-mail addresses. To reach Breakwater by phone please call 709-722-6680 and your call will be directed to one of our employees.

A Note from the President, Rebecca Rose:
Dear Friends & Supporters,
Thank you for all your support over the last few days. We have indeed been affected by the fire next door, but are extremely grateful to the fire department for doing such a good job at saving our building. Thankfully, we have a second warehouse located in St. Phillip’s and all of the books stored there are safe. In addition, we have most of our electronic files recovered. Over the coming weeks our offices at 100 Water Street will be professionally cleaned and we will take stock of what has been affected by the smoke and water damage sustained. We will in the coming days announce where our temporary offices will be located, but in the meantime you can still reach our staff at the numbers and emails you already have. There are many exciting things happening at Breakwater these days and though this fire will slow us down a step, we aren’t going anywhere. Breakwater has been in business for 37 years and will carry on with business as usual.
Rebecca Rose, President
