Local Independent Bookstores

Here is a list of Independent Bookstores, located within 50 miles of the Library, including our very own Purple Crow Books. 

One of the best ways to support the authors and illustrators featured in this exhibit is to patronize local independent bookstores. By doing so, you're ensuring that a larger portion of your purchase goes directly into the pockets of these talented creators compared to when buying from big-name retailers. Beyond just the financial boost, local bookshops often play a crucial role in promoting and championing the works of nearby talents, offering them a platform they might not get elsewhere. Additionally, these bookstores are community cornerstones, fostering connections and cultural events that enrich our neighborhoods. So, when you buy local, you're not just getting a great read — you're uplifting an entire community of storytellers.
