NOGSBA is an organization comprised primarily of independent bookstores (see our Member Stores) in the New Orleans community “...who have a deep love and devotion, not only to books, but to their community and its residents, as well.”

NOGSBA's primary community focus is children's literacy, and we donate to literacy agencies throughout the city, including STAIR, various schools and libraries, and other non-profit groups. We also donate dictionaries to the Books2Prisoners program.

We run the Book Tent at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival every year, and proceeds from the tent fund our donations to literacy programs throughout the year.
