Independent Bookstore Day 2021

Independent Bookstore Day is our favorite holiday of the year! Join us for a day of celebration and show your appreciation for independent bookstores all across the country. This year's festivites will be taking place online as well as in-store, so no matter what your schedule looks like you can still celebrate with us. Covid-19 has impacted the book industry in numerous ways, and even Bookstore Day has changed. The first big difference is that you can now purchase the exclusive items ONLINE. Items don't go on sale until April 24th, so there won't be any preordering. If an item is listed as out of stock online, you can always call the store for current availability.  

You can safely enjoy these Independent Bookstore Day activities from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a zoom account. Click each image to get your link!
