Independent Booksellers of the Piedmont, NC & the April Bookstore Challenge

The Independent Booksellers of Piedmont North Carolina (IBOP*NC) is a group of 12 independent bookstores located in the Piedmont area of North Carolina. During the month of April, pick up a Field Guide at any of our stores (listed below) then visit any or all 12 stores before April 29 to get it stamped and win prizes! Please note, the Bookmarks store will not be open until summer, but you may visit them online.

We are dedicated to promoting reading and creating community across central North Carolina. IBOP*NC is part of a larger, national effort to recognize and celebrate independent bookstores nationwide.

We celebrate Independent Bookstore Day, a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April. The celebration takes place in our stores the entire month of April and will culminate with special events and limited edition items for book lovers in each store on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

These bookstores, listed below in alphabetical order, are members of the Independent Booksellers of Piedmont North Carolina.
