Saturday, April 30, is Independent Bookstore Day! These bookstores will be celebrating with special events throughout the day. While the bookselling world has definitely felt the impact of online book sales, Marin County's independent bookstores are still going strong, providing the community with a wonderful literary resource. Many of these local independent bookstores offer more than just a cozy place to shop for your favorite books; many of them have full calendars of events ranging from booksignings to story time. Some even have fantastic cafes where you can relax with an cappuccino and your new favorite novel.
Here's our guide to independent bookstores in Marin County, all of which offer books for the whole family. We've included used bookstores, too, and many of these independent stores sell used books as well. Make sure you check out the new Copperfields Books in Downtown Novato.
