About SIBA

The Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance is a trade organization for independent bookstores in the South. It exists to empower, promote, and celebrate core member bookstores in a spirit of partnership. Independent, privately held, brick & mortar, commercially zoned bookstores with a retail storefront, in our region will constitute the core members. We have two over-arching goals:

A. Core Members will have resources and information to increase public awareness of their importance in the community. 

B. Core Members will have skills/capabilities that contribute to their short and long term viability.

All of SIBA's programs and services are designed to fulfill one or both of these goals.

SIBA runs an extensive number of programs, services, and marketing initiatives. An overview of the resources available to members can be found in this kit. Suggestions, comments and feedback are encouraged.
