Start Making Plans for Independent Bookstore Day [6]

Booksellers who are planning to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day [8] (IBD) on Saturday, April 24, should visit the “For the Trade” section of the Bookstore Day website to check out an array of ideas for how to mark the event, whether in-person or online. Here are some suggestions for stores that are starting to make plans:

While the opportunity to order special merchandise has ended, booksellers can still sign up to celebrate IBD [13]. Signing up ensures your store will receive all IBD information and marketing materials, and is included on the searchable map.

IBD tote bag orders [14] are also welcome through the end of the day today, Wednesday, February 10.

Booksellers with questions can reach out to ibd@bookweb.org [15].
