Independent Bookshop Week 2020

20 June 2020

Independent Bookshop Week 2020 will take place 20 to 27 June. It's run by the Booksellers Association, and this year will celebrate the resilient spirit of indie bookshops, with virtual author events, online story times, Twitter chats and more. In addition, the public will be encouraged to support their local high street by choosing an indie bookshop when making a book purchase during Independent Bookshop Week, and beyond. Follow @booksaremybag for all things Independent Bookshop Week and bookshops.

Bookshops will not be able to open to customers in Scotland until 29 June 2020 but some are already open elsewhere in the UK and Ireland. Our BooksfromScotland website has a page with updated information about Scottish bookshops that are offering online ordering: see Bookshop Information across Scotland-Covid-19
