We stand with Black Lives Matter and those protesting for equality and reform. We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

Books Around the Corner: Independent Bookstore Day

August 29 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Free
Books Around the Corner, 40 NW 2nd Street, Gresham, OR 97030 + Google Map

Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country. Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. This year it will be especially different. We will not be open for public browsing BUT we will get creative!

We will be available to help window shop all day with exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online. Will will go live before the special day and show you all the exclusive items we’ll have! More details to come!

Why are we celebrating 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 quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent and filled with book clubs and community.

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.
