Independent Bookstore Day Celebration


April 29, 2023

Saturday, April 27th is
Independent Bookstore Day!

We are thrilled to invite you to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day with us on Saturday, April 27th! This is an annual event that celebrates independent bookstores and the important role they play in our communities.

We have a number of exciting activities planned for the day, including poetry readings, exclusive merchandise, beer specials, live music and more. You’ll have the opportunity to browse our latest book collections and enjoy some refreshments with fellow book lovers.

Independent Bookstore Day is also an opportunity to show your support for independent businesses like ours. By shopping at independent bookstores, you are not only supporting local businesses, but you are also helping to preserve the diversity and vitality of our communities.

We hope you will join us for this special event, and please feel free to bring your friends and family along! Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
