The Booksellers Association of the United Kingdom & Ireland Limited
The Booksellers Network logo

The Booksellers Network is a space for booksellers who are members of the Booksellers Association to come together; to share ideas, offer mutual support, provide professional development and networking opportunities, and feel part of the wider bookselling community.

The Booksellers Network was born out of feedback from BA members and helps bring booksellers together from across the UK and Ireland. As well as providing a space for booksellers to chat with each other, The Booksellers Network is a source of information about all BA activity, including upcoming events, member services, campaigns and industry info.

In the summer, the BA hosts a Booksellers Network Summer Party sponsored by HarperCollins.

The primary meeting place for the Booksellers Network is a closed Facebook Group for members to talk freely. At the time of writing, the Booksellers Network Facebook Group has 1,085 members. We encourage all bookshop owners and managers (of either independent or chain bookshops) in BA membership to involve their staff in the Booksellers Network.
