Proud Member

For almost 125 years, the American Booksellers Association (ABA) has been the guiding voice for independently-owned bookstores. Founded in 1900, ABA is a national not-for-profit trade organization that supports the success of independent bookstores. This success is assisted through education, information dissemination, business services, programming, technology, and advocacy. ABA’s membership has evolved over the years, and our members are more diverse,  involved in community, and act as guiding forces in locales around the country. The total number of independent bookstores we represent is 2,500+.

ABA is governed by a volunteer board that is elected by the membership. In addition to the Board of Directors service, members also serve on a number of advisory councils, including the ABA Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee (DEIC) in support of ABA’s commitment to antiracism, representation, equity, and access.
