Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day at Bank Square Books! Independent Bookstore Day is a celebration of books, readers, and indie bookselling. Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.
In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year.
We will have exclusive Independent Bookstore Day merchandise available for purchase in store only, plus special events at both bookstores.
All day at Bank Square Books, we will have a bookmark-making station set up, and chances to win prizes! Check back for more details!
