LOS ANGELES, June 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub, an industry first, is dedicated to making strong, mutual connections between indie and small-press authors and an extensive network of libraries. Founded in 2015, it is imbued with the enthusiasm and ambition of its founder, the bestselling author Alinka Rutkowska. Working in conjunction with all major libraries, the core commitment of the LibraryBub service is to help librarians to identify acclaimed books from the independent publishing sector. Offering an extensive range of outreach and output, Rutkowska enables thousands of emerging authors to achieve publishing success.
LibraryBub introduces thousands of librarians to bestselling and award-winning books from the independent publishing sector. These books hold immense potential for enhancing the lives of their readers. Celebrated novelist Sara Zarr recalls her childhood in the 1970s in San Francisco. "We didn't have money – we relied upon hand-me-down clothing, food stamps – so the whole idea of buying a book was completely foreign to me... all my reading came from the library. I remember sitting in these very low, round tables at a library... and taking the little golf pencil and filling out the slip taking it to the desk, and it was amazing to me that you could go and get free books, as many as you could carry, and come back the next week and get more." Librarians enable writers to make that kind of difference to people's lives and LibraryBub CEO Alinka Rutkowska considers it a privilege to support them in that role.
