Welcome to NAIBA! We're a regional trade association of locally-owned, independent booksellers, and the authors and publishers who enjoy working with them and promoting their books through the independent bookstore. We provide the community, education, awareness, and tools for independent bookstores to succeed. Our region covers New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington DC, northern Virginia and West Virginia.

To achieve these goals, NAIBA hosts an annual conference in the Fall to educate and enlighten booksellers and publishers; creates opportunities throughout the year for booksellers to visit with each other and exchange ideas and have problems solved; communicates weekly with our members on industry events, issues, and creative ideas.

"Our membership is worth every penny for all the great services provided to booksellers. Appreciate all your hard work."
