Thank you for supporting your local, independent bookstore!
June 26 is our first anniversary and we would like to celebrate with you! All day long we will have special deals, snacks, activities, and give-aways. Then, at 7 pm we will host a Harry Potter house party. Come to the party dressed in house colors and compete with your house to win the house cup!
We have something for everyone this summer from reading to writing, crafts to cards, Harry Potter to Where's Waldo. Here is a highlight of some of the fun that is coming to Gathering Volumes.
Book Clubs All of our Book Clubs agreed that they would like to continue meeting in the summer. We have author visits lined up for at least 4 of our book clubs over the summer. If you have been thinking about joining a book club, now is the time!
Be on the lookout for our Where's Waldo 30th Anniversary celebration. The celebration will last the month of July with a Perrysburg Where's Waldo search, fun activities and prizes, and will end with a Where's Waldo party and prize giveaway at the end of July. You can stop by any of the 25 participating Perrysburg businesses starting on July 1 to get your passport and start searching for Waldo. Find 10 Waldos and get your passport stamped by 10 businesses and then bring your passport to Gathering Volumes for a prize! Find 20 or more Waldos and get your passport stamped by 20 or more businesses and you will be entered into the grand prize drawing for a boxed set of the Where's Waldo book collection as well as other great prizes donated by participating businesses such as 6 cupcakes from So Many Somethings!
Art Party! We will be kicking off the Where's Waldo Perrysburg event with our second Local Art Party! Stop by Gathering Volumes starting at 6 pm on July 1 for an evening of fun including food, music by Christopher Salyer, art by artists such as Dawn Bucklew, A.S. Coomer, Matt Motts, Sandy Brackett, and more! This is a family friendly event and all are welcome to come admire some great local art!
