National Independent Bookstore Day


The second annual National Independent Bookstore Day was on May 2, but make sure to support your local bookstore the other 364 days a year, too.

National Independent Bookstore Day began as the California Bookstore Day, sponsored by the Northern California Bookstore Association on May 2, 2014. It was in response to more and
more people purchasing books online and from large chain bookstores.

In these difficult economic times, it is especially important to patronize our few remaining neighborhood independent bookstores. Remember these people are our neighbors. They work long hours, pay taxes and provide local employment. If we don’t patronize the few remaining local community bookstores, they will go the way of the dinosaur.

Buy and read a good book. It’s health food for the mind.
