Independent Bookstore Day

SATURDAY, APRIL 29TH | All day long!
At Theodore's Books

Join us at Theodore's in celebrating the 10th annual Independent Bookstore Day!

We're keeping the party going all-day-long with fun activities and a big raffle prize that one lucky shopper is going to be taking home.

For our younger readers, join our bookmark art competition! Print out or download this template, and draw a colorful bookmark inspired by your love of books. Submit your entry by April 1st, and you might be one of a few lucky winners we choose to be featured on our bookmarks given out on April 29th for Independent Bookstore Day! Entries can be emailed to with the subject line "2023 Bookmark Competition" or dropped off at the store. See if your design has been picked by coming down to Theodore's where we'll be handing them out all day to shoppers.
