New Mexico Book Co-op
The New Mexico Book Co-op is a partnership of over 1,500 local authors and publishers. Our sole purpose is to showcase and sell local books. We have organized a variety of activities that allow local authors and publishers to promote their books and to make them available for sale to the public. We also have created several alliances with booksellers to showcase local books. All the Borders stores in New Mexico, for example, are displaying the winners in the New Mexico Book awards, sponsored by the New Mexico Book Co-op and several other organziations. Borders is also scheduling special book signing events for all these winners as a way of promoting local New Mexico books. The New Mexico Book Co-op has also arranged regular columns in several newspapers and magazines featuring local books; check out the Alibi and PrimeTime for examples of these regular information sources. The best part of all these activities from the New Mexico is that there are no membership dues. Anyone interested in local books can join in this partnership and participate in any or all of our activities.

The New Mexico Book Co-op received the 2005 Book In Hand Award from the New Mexico Book Association for significant contribution to bookselling in New Mexico. The New Mexico Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America awarded the New Mexico Book Co-op the 2005 Silver Cumbre Award for an exceptional Institutional Promotions Campaign. In addition to these two major awards, the Co-op has received seventeen major website awards.
