Visit Weller Book Works, The King's English(SLC), The Printed Word(SANDY), or Booked on 25th(OGDEN) to pick up your passport. Visit each of the stores on April 28. Get each store to mark the appropriate box on your passport. When you fill your passport, just leave it with the last store you visit. Make sure to fill out your contact information. We will draw an entrant from the completed forms. The winner wins a gift card from all 4 stores!

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! There are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.

Why celebrate independent bookstores?

Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.

In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. And they are at your service.
