Amazon's campus pick-up program comes to New York; a Spanish-language bookstore arrives in Phoenix; an Oklahoma indie preps for its opening; and more.

Spanish-language Bookstore Opening in Phoenix: Palabras Librería will hold its grand opening November 12 in conjunction with the Grand Avenue Festival. Owner Rosie Magaña opened the bookstore with just five books last year after being inspired by the interactive art instillation “Librería Donceles” by Pablo Helguera at ASU’s Combine Studio. The installation showcased a library with more than 10,000 Spanish-language books. Now that the store’s shelves are stocked Magaña wants to celebrate. She has also set up two pop-up libraries in downtown Phoenix.

Amazon Opens at Stony Brook: Earlier this month Stony Brook University became the first college campus in New York state to offer an Amazon pickup location. The location inside the Frank Melville Jr. Library is the 15th college to open a pickup location since Amazon began the program last year.

Commonplace Books to Pop Up in Oklahoma City Next MonthThe group behind a new indie bookstore coming to the Midtown neighborhood in early 2017 will test their concept as a pop-up starting December 1.
