Shopping for everyday items after a long day at work is that mundane task some of us truly dread. There's just something so annoying about an overly helpful shop assistant when you just want to shop in peace. And some supermarkets are so big that you can spend 20 minutes just looking for the cheese section.
Today we take a detour from our tour of beautiful libraries around the world to highlight an important part of our communities: independent bookstores. The cornerstone of local communities, small bookstores have long provided a haven for discovery. In this time of uncertainty, we encourage and invite you to support your local bookstores. Raise awareness by sharing favorite bookstore or tagging them below with the hashtag #SaveABookstore.
