Independent Bookstore Day

Come and celebrate 11 years of Independent Bookstore Day with us on Saturday April 27th!!

Independent Bookstore Day (IBD) was established in 2013 to promote, celebrate, and highlight the value of the independent bookstore community.  The day has been observed on the last Saturday of April every year since 2013.  This year there are over 900 stores participating across the country.

Independent Bookstore Day is organized by the American Booksellers Association, a national not-for-profit trade organization, that works with booksellers and industry partners to ensure the success and profitability of independently owned book retailers, and to assist in expanding the community of the book.

This is what's happening during the day -

  • Celebratory Mimosas!  We'll have special non-alcoholic ones for kids too! 
  • Find the Libro.fm Golden Ticket hidden somewhere in the store to win 12 free audiobook credits. 
  • Have a go at Guess The Shredded Book
