Independent Bookstore Day was established in 2013 to promote, celebrate, and highlight the value of the independent bookstore community.

We all must be stewards of the things we value. Local bookstores — owned by our neighbors — are centers for community, they support learning and independent thought, and they’re contributors to our local economy. When you support a local bookshop, your money stays in the local economy longer and does more good…so you can feel good about your Independent Bookstore Day celebrations!
