Let’s celebrate the role bookshops play in fostering our imaginations this Love Your Bookshop Day, Saturday 7th October 2023
Bookshops offer people much more than a book. They present limitless portals to different worlds. Visiting a bookshop provides people with an opportunity to be transported to wherever they want to go, maybe it’s climbing a multi-storey treehouse to find the marshmallow machine, a trip to the outer edges of the universe exploring Arrakis, or even back in time to watch the first pages of the Oxford dictionary come together. Wherever we want to go, we can get there via our local bookshop.
Love Your Bookshop Day 2023 (LYBD 2023) celebrates the unique role our local bookshops play in helping to expand our worlds by ‘Giving the Gift of Imagination’.
This year, let’s remind everyone of the unlimited worlds and opportunities that exist in their local bookshop. Get involved by sharing your activities across social media on the day and tagging #loveyourbookshop #LYBD2023.
