Independent Bookstore Day

Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day with the Doylestown & Lahaska Bookshops!

What is Independent Bookstore Day?: Modelled on Record Store Day and Free Comic Book Day, Independent Bookstore Day was started in 2014 as a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April.  We think indie bookstores are pretty special places and this day is a great excuse to have a bookstore party, which is the best kind of party, and celebrate the local community that is so supportive of the Doylestown and Lahaska Bookshops.
