Independent Bookstore Day!

This year Independent Bookstore Day is April 28th. It’s a day for book lovers to party all day at indie bookstores and celebrate shopping/reading/community building locally.

Below is a list of bookstores in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Manhattan, Yonkers, Westchester and parts of New Jersey participating (as much as been disclosed but not exclusively). Check with local stores for events but most will have exclusive bookish items for sale and lots of fun! Go support your local bookstore and spring weather.

The Strand is supporting a scavenger hunt: people who use social media to post their finds are entered to win bookish goodies from participating indies. Check the link and participating shops.

Lastly, if you live in Brooklyn, there is a Brooklyn Lit Crawl happening with its very own after-party! All you have to do is visit some participating bookstores in Brooklyn, make at least one purchase at any of them and post pictures on social media with the #bkbookcrawl hashtag. Link below for official rules, participating shops and after-party details.

I hope to see you all there!

  1. Oh my gosh, how did I miss this?!?! I’m a *huge* fan of independent bookstores (I practically live in the two that are closest to my house), *and* 28 April is my birthday!! Damn!! Fingers crossed it falls on the same date next year…
