In addition to creating the Coronavirus Resources for Booksellers page and a dedicated members-only COVID-19 Bookseller-to-Bookseller Forum, the American Booksellers Association has been sending out daily updates to the membership to offer strategies for managing store business during the outbreak, tips for applying for grants and loans, and general support.
Every update is available now in the Daily Email Update Archive on BookWeb.
Topics touch on:
- Understanding recently passed laws related to COVID
- How best to reach the IndieCommerce team
- Self-care during stressful times
- And more
Booksellers are also invited to participate in twice-weekly Zoom calls with fellow members. These open forums, held via Zoom every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET, offer a place for booksellers to share what they need, what they’re struggling with, questions for ABA, advice they’re seeking from other booksellers — or it’s simply a place to chat with another friendly face. Join the Zoom calls here; the meeting ID is 749 778 583.
