The European and International Booksellers Federation (EIBF)

is a non-commercial European and international umbrella organisation representing national booksellers associations and booksellers around the world, including brick and mortar bookshops, online bookshops, independent bookshops, and chains. Through its member associations, EIBF speaks on behalf of more than 25.000 individual booksellers.

 

We believe bookshops are an integral part of local communities, providing access to literature and culture, contributing to financial sustainability in their areas, and helping to improve reading outcomes for all.
