What is Independent Bookstore Day??
Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April. Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different.
Why Shop at Independent Bookstores?
- Community: Independent bookstores act as community anchors; they serve a unique role in promoting an open exchange of ideas and enriching the cultural life of communities.
- Economic Impact: When you shop local, you are directly supporting and enriching your own community with your purchases—and your tax dollars.
- Amazon will be just fine. Buy books from people that want to sell books, not explore space.
