We are asking friends of Bookworks to support our 35-year-old, locally-owned, community-based independent bookstore during our online fundraising campaign and to join us for a FREE fundraising party April 4!

In addition to providing book sales to schools, conferences, and our community partners, Bookworks offers patrons and supporters more than 400 premier literary events year after year. Now is the time to take the store to the next level, and we can’t do it without your help. 

Big changes are happening at Bookworks.
In May 2018, we will present a newly-remodeled Bookworks with an improved event space for our hundreds of free, in store events. We need help with the finishing touches--fixtures, lighting, and inventory--that will make our store shine even more! 

You can offer your support right away by donating online at bkwrks.com/donate.
We have online options for donations at the $50, $100, $250, $500, and $1000 level. 

We'll thank our donors and continue our fundraising efforts at a special event at the store on April 4th at 6 pm. Come celebrate your community bookstore with an evening of literature, live Irish folk music with Már Ata, and delicious treats from Flying Star. Meet local authors including North Valley historian, Francelle Alexander, and children's illustrator Ross Van Dusen, who will sign copies of their books. 

We will be taking your much-appreciated donations, hosting a silent auction, and conducting a raffle for book swag.

See you April 4th!

--In Gratitude, Wyatt Wegrzyn and Danielle Foster, Bookworks owners
