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.  

Why are we celebrating independent bookstores? 

Independent bookstores are not just stores, we see ourselves as community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. We are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them us year than there were last year. And we are at your service!

In Rhinebeck: Nancy Castaldo @ 4 pm

Join us to celebrate Nancy Castaldo's new book which details the successful efforts of scientists to bring threatened animals back from the brink of extinction! Perfect for ages 7-12.
