Bookstores

The New England Independent Booksellers Association has served independent booksellers for 47 years. NEIBA enjoys the participation of enthusiastic members who support the organization’s mission: to further the success of professional independent booksellers in New England and to foster a vital and supportive bookselling community.

NEIBA promotes independent bookselling in New England through an annual trade show, educational programming, print and electronic publications, and a variety of other resources — as well as promotional programs. NEIBA is governed by an elected Board of Officers that meets regularly with the Advisory Council and Executive Director.

Membership is open to individuals and organizations involved in the marketing, distribution, and retail sale of books throughout New England. Booksellers, publishers, sales representatives, wholesalers, vendors of bookstore supplies and services, and prospective booksellers are welcome. If you are an author, illustrator, publicist, or anyone in the wider book industry, we invite you to become a "Friend of NEIBA."


The membership year runs from July 1 through June 30. Due to COVID-19, we are extending the deadline for 2020-2021 NEIBA membership dues until January 1, 2021.

Annual dues are $175 for independent bookstores (including pop-up, mobile, and online-only bookstores) and $200 for prospective bookstores. Benefits of membership include:
