|Welcome to the website for the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association. We are a non-profit professional association of locally-owned bookstores, booksellers, and industry professionals. The Association was begun over 40 years ago in Denver and has grown to include booksellers in Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.
While we are called a “booksellers” association, we have always taken an expansive view of that term, and our membership includes as many publishers, sales reps, wholesalers, and other industry professionals as it does bookstores. If you are an industry professional, established bookstore, or someone who is interested in opening a bookstore, you will find a wealth of information on our website.
We encourage you to explore our pages, where you can search for bookstores near you or at your travel destination, access bookstore websites and e-mail addresses, peruse book awards lists, find information about MPIBA projects and events, and learn about current issues affecting the book industry.
If you have suggestions for us or are looking for information that you don’t find here, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to hear from you.
