Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day

Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day

On December 6, 2014, Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day (TYCBD) will celebrate its 5th anniversary. Author Jenny Milchman founded TYCBD in 2010, and it has grown to include more than 700 bookstore participants around the world.

If your bookstore would like to participate, Milchman offers this:

The ABA will be sending out a Red Box mailing about this year’s Day. You can do anything (or everything) to participate! Sign up on our website, takeyourchildtoabookstore.org; put a poster in your window or bookmarks at the counter; plan a special event. If you do plan something, please let me know as I always speak to reporters and media in advance of the Day, and I can describe your bookstore and your Day.

The TYCBD website has a map of participating bookstores as well as downloadable banners, posters, and other materials.
