AAPI-Owned Bookstores to Support

This directory is regularly updated to reflect new stores. Last update: 5/14/2021

Amidst the rise of crimes targeting Asian Americans and Asians globally, we’ve put together a directory of bookstores owned by Asian American and Pacific Islanders, as well as Asian-owned Canadian bookstores to support. Check each listing for the store’s website, as well as how to follow them on social media.

Looking for more? You can also browse our collection of audiobooks by AAPI authors, take a quiz to find an AAPI-authored audiobook, and use our Bookstore Finder to locate a store near you.

Stores listed with Libro.fm Storefronts below are Libro.fm partner stores, meaning that when you purchase audiobooks from their Libro.fm Storefront, it directly supports their bookstore.
Bookstores: Want to become a Libro.fm partner store? Email bookstores@libro.fm, and we’ll take care of the rest.
