ABC Membership

At ABC, we believe in great books.

We also believe in the power of independent business, and we know what it takes to run a successful bookstore.

It takes knowledge, resources, smart decision-making, and support to stay competitive in today’s aggressive retail climate. Since 1985, ABC has been making independent booksellers stronger through its programs, communication tools, and strategic alliances. ABC connects booksellers, publishers, and other book professionals all over the country, and provides a virtual space for ideas and community. Through ABC booksellers speak with one voice to keep independent children’s bookselling strong.

The Association of Booksellers for Children (ABC) is a non-profit 501(c)6 Trade Association governed by a Board of Directors, with a membership that includes Bookstore, Booksellers, Publishers, Authors & Illustrators, and many other industry professionals. Download the 2010 ABC Board list.

No matter if you are returning or joining ABC for the very first time, we'd be delighted to count you among the more than 600 stores, publishers, and industry professionals who build their children's business with ABC.

At ABC, we take children’s books seriously!
