Kepler’s Books is thrilled to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, April 29th. Come in early for the chance to buy exclusive books, posters, coloring books and other cool stuff that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.


And join the Book Lover's Quest. Visit 10 participating indie bookstores during the month of April to become eligible to win the GRAND PRIZE: a library of books worth over $1000! Come in and pick up your form today.


So come join the party and get in on the fun! We’ll also have treats, including cake and lemonade on hand. And oh, the stuff! Glorious swag awaits the brave souls who arrive at our little bookshop for Indie Bookstore Day! Keep in mind that we have a limited supply of these one-of-a-kind items, so when they’re gone, they’re gone.
