Shop Local this Holiday Season
The Bookstore staff will make every attempt to process your book orders and have them at the store for pickup in just a couple of days. Sure it's easy to shop online, but by spending your dollars locally, you'll contribute to a thriving downtown Glen Ellyn economy, not to mention your friendly local independent bookstore.
Elves' Picks and More
Join The Bookstore Elves on Nov. 11 for a lively chat about gift book ideas for everyone on your list. This is a private event for our customers, so we absolutely need your RSVP for you to attend. See more details here.
In preparation for the holidays, The Bookstore is participating in these events this month: Ladies Night Out on Nov. 17, the Glen Ellyn Holiday Walk on Nov. 27, and Small Business Saturday on Nov. 28. Authors Sherri Duskey Rinker and Bob Goldsborough also will serve as guest booksellers on Nov. 28.
AmEx customers: Don't forget to pre-register with American Express for special Small Business Saturday rebate deals. Find more info here.
Books for Bridge Communities
The annual Bridge Communities' Books for Kids program is underway through The Bookstore. We're hoping to provide a book for each of the 78 children served by Bridge Communities transitional housing in DuPage County. You can select and purchase books at The Bookstore in November, and we'll make sure they get to Santa for distribution to the children at their holiday party in early December.
