We adore Mother Earth! Whether it’s through the power of cultivation by planting trees and native plants or spreading the word on the importance of minimizing waste through the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle tenet, Bookmans supports environmental efforts and education. We want your help this April for Earth Month. From the heat of the picturesque Sonoran Desert to the tall Ponderosa Pines of the Coconino National Forest to where ever your horizon leads you, Bookmans has the earth-friendly event to inspire your love for Mother. Take a peek at our events calendar to see what we mean.

Earth Month: Our Shelves Are Orange, But Our Hearts Are Green

At Bookmans Ina, customers get up close and personal with reptiles from all over the world. Have a blast meeting snakes, lizards, turtles and millipedes at our House of Herb. You can also learn to chill at the Anti-Stress Demonstration.

Stop by Bookmans Grant for the Lorax Earthly Celebration where we learn how to speak for the trees. Don’t miss your chance to learn about the power of air using ping pong balls, toilet plungers and more at the Mad Science Show: Up, Up and Away!

Decorate your own pot and plant your own flower to take home at Create A Plant at Bookmans Speedway.

Bookmans Mesa gets in on the earthly action at Craft Testing Dummies by repurposing old books and giving them new life. Our favorite BookPal Toni stops by for a special edition of Saturday Morning Storytime with Eric Carle, Eric Carle, What Do You See?

Story Garden: Grow With Books continues every Wednesday in April at Bookmans Phoenix and be sure to attend the Butterfly Social! Friends and family are welcome as we celebrate spring in a whimsical fashion, creating one-of-a-kind butterfly-inspired crafts.

The 3rd Annual Seusstacular Earth Day Celebration kicks off at Bookmans Flagstaff. Partnering with Warner’s Nursery, we learn about the benefits of planting a garden and bring out our inner Lorax. Don’t miss out on Moon Mermaid and the Treasure of Friendship where we upcycle plastic bags and water bottles to minimize waste and keep our oceans clean.

Bookmans stores across Arizona reduce, reuse and recycle year-’round. We encourage all of you to help us as we strive for a healthier and happier environment and minimize our carbon footprint.
