Guess what’s just around the corner! Canadian Independent Bookstore Day!!
In addition to celebrating in-store with freebies, grab bags, discounts, and door prizes, we have a special treat for Ottawa area book lovers this year – we’ve joined forces with our fellow independent bookstores, Octopus Books, Perfect Books Ottawa, The Spaniel’s Tale Bookstore, Singing Pebble Books, and World of Maps to bring you the first ever Ottawa Indie Bookstore Crawl!
From Friday, April 28 to Sunday, April 30, book lovers from the Ottawa area can collect stamps from each of our city’s six independent bookstores for their chance to win a $150 bookstore shopping spree! You can pick up your stamp card at any of the six stores, collect your stamps from the 28th to the 30th, and then hand in your card at your last bookstore stop!
Entries must be submitted at a participating store before closing time on Sunday, April 30. Be sure to check individual stores’ hours of operation before heading out!
Please note that here at Books on Beechwood, we will be CLOSED on Sunday, April 30 so will only be able to give out stamps and collect completed entries on Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29.
We can’t tell you how excited we are about celebrating Canadian Independent Bookstore Day with you all this year!! Even if The Ottawa Indie Bookstore Crawl isn’t something you think you can swing, we hope you’ll still able to make the trek out to your local indie to show them some love and partake in the celebrations!
As booksellers, we all dearly love what we do and we know that none of it would be possible without all of you and your deep and abiding love of books! So, here’s to you, dearest Book Lovers! Happy Canadian Independent Bookstore Day! We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
