Chicagoland Bookstore Crawl

Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day and National Library Week with a 10% Discount at the Newberry Bookshop!

The Newberry Bookshop is thrilled to participate in this year's Chicagoland Bookstore Crawl by offering 10% off your purchase! The crawl takes place on Independent Bookstore Day (IBD), a one-day national party celebrating all your favorite indie bookstores.

Use the map at ChiLoveBooks.com to plan your itinerary, which we hope will include our very own Newberry Bookshop. Simply pick up your #ChiLoveBooks passport from the participating store of your choice (we vote for the Newberry Bookshop). A small initial purchase is required to get the passport and your first stamp. You’ll get a stamp at each additional participating store you visit that day. Visit ten stores in one day and get 10% off at participating bookstores for an entire year. Visit fifteen stores for 15% off. Readers are encouraged to post snapshots of their purchases, and themselves at their favorite stores, on #ChiLoveBooks.

More details about the Chicagoland Bookstore Crawl can be found at ChiLoveBooks.com.

About National Library Week

The Book Crawl coincides with National Library Week (April 23-29), a week-long event organized by the American Library Association to celebrate the work of libraries across the United States.

To celebrate, we're offering 10% off all purchases at the Newberry Bookshop (both in-store and online) for the entire week! To access the discount online, enter the code Tome10 at checkout.

As we celebrate how libraries support communities nationwide, it is also important to remember that we need your support in return. Make a gift this National Library Week to help keep the Newberry vibrant for years to come.
