Come What May
If you missed our big surprise debut at Independent Bookstore Day, we unveiled the latest addition to our family — The River Bend Book Truck! Stocked with books for all ages, new store merchandise and special bookish gifts, this mobile bookshop will serve as an extension of our mission to reach readers within and now even beyond our local community.

Keep tabs on where we're popping up and parking around the area — partnering with farmers' markets, local fairs and plenty more places — by checking out the Book Truck page on our website. And stay attuned to more by following our adventures on Instagram at @RBBookTruck. Keep on reading!

Jake's Mitzvah Project
We're teaming up on a new kind of partnership for us — longtime River Bend regular Jake and his family have selected us to help with his Mitzvah Project! Jake says, "Since I LOVE to read, and the theme of my Bar Mitzvah is books, I decided to do a book drive to benefit Children's Reading Partners."
