Brooklyn Bookstore Crawl

How It Works


How It Works

BK Bookstore Crawl is a self-guided crawl through Brooklyn’s many, eclectic, wonderful independent bookstores riddled across the sprawling borough. There’s no wrong way to crawl, as long as you explore and learn more about the over 30+ indie bookstores residing in Brooklyn alone.

For the ambitious, this might mean starting at the tip of Greenpoint and making your way to Bay Ridge. For those looking to explore their own backyard, it might mean visiting all five indie bookstores in Williamsburg alone. For the social butterflies, it might mean grabbing your friends and exploring their neighborhoods and local indies.

The possibilities are endless. We only ask that you visit at least three bookstores on April 28th. All indie bookstores are clearly marked on the map on our website and are listed on the bookstores tab.

Want to share the love? At each store you visit, post a picture on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using the hashtag #BKBOOKCRAWL and don't forget to tag the store! Participants will be entered into a giveaway to win prizes throughout the day. Prizes will be available for pickup at the afterparty.

Note: To be eligible for prizes your social media accounts must be public.

There will be an exclusive afterparty for all BK Bookstore Crawl participants, location TBD. To attend, bring a receipt from any BK indie bookstore with the date 4/28/2018. Entry includes one ticket for the Grand Prize raffle. For each additional receipt you show, you'll receive 1 raffle ticket, so shop to win!

Happy crawling! If you have any questions, please visit our Contact page.
