Whitelam Books Celebrates Five Years in Business

Day-long Birthday Party Planned for Saturday November 5

On Saturday, November 5, Whitelam Books will celebrate five years since opening in November 2017. A day-long event is planned to delight customers and celebrate the growth of the beloved independent bookstore at 610 Main St. in Reading. 

The store opens at 10:00am on Saturday, November 5. Be on the sidewalk right at 10 to see owner Liz Whitelam ring a large bell to announce the anniversary. A fun, old-fashioned treat for the whole family. Or pop by at noon for a giant happy birthday sing-along.

Promotions all day include:

  • Buy more than 2 items and get a free book (while supplies last)
  • Free Whitelam tote bag with $100+ purchase (while supplies last)
  • Enter a raffle to win a $5 Whitelam gift card – drawings every hour on the hour 
  • A free kids birthday craft
  • Treats to eat

Owner Liz Whitelam will be on hand all day to chat with customers about her experience opening an independent bookstore, from the joy to the challenges, including keeping a small business open during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whitelam Books friendly staff will be available to talk all things books and help you pick out the perfect new book to read or gift to give. Get a jump start on your holiday shopping, enjoy some fun and good cheer, and make sure to stop in at Whitelam Books on Saturday Nov. 5.
