Join us on Saturday, April 27th for Independent Bookstore Day!

A fun day of celebrating our indie bookstores and the people who run them and love reading!

What better to start our Independent Bookstore Day celebration than to share it with the 50th anniversary of Sesame Street.
After all, Sesame Street is about the people (and furry monsters!) in the neighborhood, and the community that brings everyone together - just like watchung booksellers.

10:30 Sesame Street storytime and activity

          Hope to see lots of little Elmos and Cookie Monsters in the audience!


  Hope to see you on Saturday, April 27
        children's storytime and activity,
        exclusive IBD bags (they're SO nice) and special IBD merch,
        and special member privileges and lots o' fun activities. 
        Pop by!!!!


What is Independent Bookstore Day? Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April.  Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. But in addition to authors, live music, cupcakes, scavenger hunts, kids events, art tables, readings, barbecues, contests, and other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.

― Ann Patchett, bestselling author and co-owner of Parnassus Books
