The Ann Arbor Book Society is committed to making visitors and members of our community aware that Ann Arbor is a book lover’s destination. One of our favorite ways to do this is through our free Booktown Map, which features information about Ann Arbor’s independent bookstores, nonprofit resellers, and libraries. Originally, maps were available exclusively at the locations featured on them, but shortly before the pandemic, we expanded distribution to include area hotels. We are proud to have distributed 16,000 maps since the summer of 2016! However, due to the uncertainty of the pandemic and recent changes within the book community, we have only done one limited printing since early 2020.
Now more than ever it is important to bring attention to those organizations that make up the foundation of Ann Arbor’s vibrant book community. We’re excited to bring our Booktown Map back for 2022, but we need your help! Please consider making a donation to the Ann Arbor Book Society this National Giving Month so that we may get the map into the hands of more book lovers.
