American Booksellers Association and On Demand Books Form Partnership
About the American Booksellers Association: Founded in 1900, the American Booksellers Association is a not-for-profit trade organization devoted to meeting the needs of its core members-independently owned bookstores with storefront locations-through education, information dissemination, business products and services, and advocacy. ABA exists
to protect and promote the interests of independent retail book businesses, as well as to protect the First Amendment rights of every American. The association actively supports free speech, literacy, and programs that support local and independent retail shops. A board of nine booksellers, representing thousands of members, governs the Association. ABA is headquartered in Tarrytown, New York.
