LOS ANGELES, March 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- LibraryBub, founded in 2015, is dedicated to making strong, mutual connections between indie and small-press authors and an extensive network of libraries. An industry first, 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. South Carolina author Eden Royce recalls her childhood fascination with libraries. "My mother took me to the library every week and let me roam around the children's section and select things to read while she picked out her own books. Slapping my very own library card with my name on it down on the counter, where I had to tiptoe to reach, was such a proud moment for me. It gave me control over something, and at such a young age, it was empowering. I made the choice to take those exact books home to enjoy and spend time with… I wanted to be like the authors who had books on my local library's shelves. Maybe I could write a book – one that a little girl like me might pull to her and read and remember years later." 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.
