Bookmans Phoenix
Phoenix celebrated Independence Day! Families stopped in and cooled off with 4th of July activities and frosty treats. Kids created cute crafts with our friends from Fairy Doors and Dinosaurs. The awesome staff from Local First Arizona spread the word about local fun during Independents Week. It was a wonderful time all around!

Bookmans Mesa
Mesa celebrated a Fabulous Fourth of July. Kids created one-of-a-kind sun visors to wear during their favorite summer activities.

Bookmans Speedway, Bookmans Ina and Bookmans Grant
It’s no secret that Tucson has more than its share of Harry Potter Fans and it seemed like all of them joined in on the fun. Bookmans Speedway started the party with a story about how Professor Sprout (Silly Tassie) made her way from Hogwarts to Bookmans Speedway. This was an interactive story time where the Professor, along with a life size Dumbledore, explained the difficulty of using Muggle transportation. To explain her plight she brought along her sorting hat, cloak of invisibility and mandrake while Hermione loaned her bottomless bag. Hedwig came along for the ride too. After story time, fans showed off their knowledge in a Harry Potter Trivia Contest. Bookmans Ina celebrated all things Potter with a Mystical Magic Show. The audience was treated to amazing feats of light, color and sound. If you missed this week’s event, don’t crawl under your invisible cloak!
