Independent Bookstore Day


This Saturday (April 29) we're having a big party in honor of Independent Bookstore Day! Come in and celebrate your love of indie bookstores with us from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We LOVE our customers! Here's how we're showing it:

  • Clifford The Big Red Dog will visit the store twice during the day, at 10:30 a.m. and again at 1 p.m. 
  • Shoppers can choose from special book-shaped cookies, dog biscuits and other giveaway items, while supplies last, on this day.
  • Kids can make their own Little Golden Book and other crafts.
  • Our Blind Date With a Book section will be overflowing with wrapped reader's copies of new books in exchange for your cash donation to the Glen Ellyn Children's Resource Center.
  • Write your favorite book title on our white board and tell us on a sticky note why you love The Bookstore.
  • Adults can purchase special-edition books, exclusive artwork and book-related items for sale that will ONLY be available beginning on this day and ONLY at indie bookstores. Selections from Michael Chabon, Jenny Lawson, Oliver Jeffers and more will excite book lovers. We have a limited number of items so come early.
  • And prizes! We're holding a drawing for customers on Indie Bookstore Day. Prizes include Wild World, a beautiful photography book by Lonely Planet, and a $50 Bookstore gift certificate!

See you Saturday!
