Love Your Bookshop Day History

Love Your Bookshop Day seeks to celebrate local bookshops and the things they do to express their love for the readers, authors, and books they cherish. Apart from books, Local Bookshops provide communities with a place for readers to get together, start book clubs, author signings, and much more. Buying books locally is important because the money stays local and goes back into the community. Love Your Bookshop Day occurs annually on the first Saturday of October. In 2023, Love Your Bookshop Day will be celebrated on October 7th.
