How to share Barefoot Books in your community.
Take this opportunity to start an independent business that is fun, flexible, and creative. Your membership does not require any order minimums, sales threshold requirements, or team recruiting. You can sell and market Barefoot Books to your community through book fairs, farmers’ markets, vendor events and festivals. If a virtual business works better for you, you can also sell through your website, blog, or other social networks.
Who are we?
Our growing network of Community Booksellers includes parents, grandparents, and educators who are making a difference in children's lives. They are all passionate about children’s books, and getting them into the hands of kids who need them. Find your place in this open and welcoming community!
Hear first-hand from Community Booksellers about their experience and what it means to be part of our community.
