On Saturday April 29, 450 bookstores across the country celebrated with their customers the joy of being your local place for books. On top of what we offer you everyday, on Independent Bookstore Day we went the extra mile to show how much we appreciate you! We introduced our new store pet, so please come by to meet Hardcover Jay, the Book Bin Turtle. (a pet that you don't typically "pet":)
We still have some of the exclusive 'Independent Bookstore Day' items for sale that we think you'll love such as a Mo Willems' Elephant & Piggie onesie for your baby or an exclusive short story by Rainbow Rowell for your tween or teen reader. We had a few raffle items exclusive to #BookstoreDay as well!
Five free audiobooks from our new digital partner Libro.fm were available for download on IBD only; if you are a listener of audiobooks, please consider using us and our new digital partner instead of "the big A". Refreshments and a miscellany of free posters, bookmarks, books, tote bags and smiles were given away until our supplies ran out.
We sincerely hope you can come visit us throughout the year until next Independent Bookstore Day! See your pictures on our Google Photo Album: Independent Bookstore Day Photos
