The Librairies indépendantes du Québec cooperative brings together, under the banner of Les libraires, over 100 independent bookstores in Quebec, the Maritimes and Ontario. These members have the book and the reader at heart as well as the dynamism of the literary milieu.
These bookstores are also united on a transactional site that always offers a choice of more than 1,300,000 French-language paper and digital books.
Their mandate is based on proximity, diversity and service. They are not part of a chain or commercial group and generally have no more than five points of sale. Each of them has its own personality. It is a place of advice where the book is often put forward.
An independent bookseller distinguishes himself by his knowledge and passion of the trade, his professionalism, his quality service and his involvement in his community.
