Support your local bookstore! Events + these exclusive items and more will be available!


Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April.  Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. There are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.  Want a sneak pre-view of what will be available? Click here!

12:00PM- Create your own "Little Golden Book" Crafts and Storytime!

Help us celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Little Golden Book and it's classic titles like "The Poky Little Puppy", "The Monster at the End of the Book", "The Little Red Hen", & more with this exclusive Indie Bookstore Day activity! Several of these beloved books will be read aloud and then children will have the opportunity to create their very own  version of a Little Golden Book with our special activity kits!


3:00PM- "The Shetland Tea Murder" Murder Mystery Game and Tea Time: 

 An interactive murder mystery game to celebrate Ann Cleeves' new book Cold Earth. Come share a cup of tea with us.. and convict a murderer. Participants will have to listen very carefully to the statements of the suspects from the Shetland Tea Committee, because at the end they will have to decide which one of them is the killer of Minnie Laurenson. Winners will receive their very own copy of an Ann Cleeves book, provided by Minotaur Books. (Ann is the author behind the BBC series SHETLAND, airing on PBS and on Amazon Video and the books behind the VERA series starring Brenda Blethyn, now airing on PBS and Hulu.)


ALL DAY! Literary scavenger hunt!

Scour the store to find the answers to our Literary Scavenger hunt! Prizes are available for those who can accurately  find solutions to all 20 categories! (Separate scavenger hunts will be available for adults, teens, and children. One prize per participant.)


Participation is FREE for all Indie Bookstore Day events! Just come and have a good time supporting your local Independent Bookstore.

Coming Soon!See more
Persephone BooksSee more

I discovered Persephone Books, from London, in 1999. Their mission, to re-publish books, mostly by women, that were “unjustly out of print” resulted in a trove of wonderful novels and non-fiction works, each enjoyable in its own special way.

Persephone titles here many are favorites, and some are the latest releases. When you look inside the front cover you will see printed a textile that is from the time period of the original printing, and a bookmark slipped inside. Descriptions of all of the books are in the catalogues you can find in store.

They have travelled a long way to be here; I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

ONE BOOK NEW YORK has chosen one of my favorite books as the whole NYC read! We would love everyone to join... come in for your copy!


The Merritt Bookstore is located at 57 Front Street, next to the Post Office and just down the street from Punch.


We have BOOKS! And toys, cards, small gifts, stationery, wrapping paper and more! 
Special orders placed over the weekend arrive Tuesday afternoon, in-print book orders usually take one or two days to arrive in the store.
