Become a Supporter of the North Fig Bookshop!
Independent bookstores are a special kind of business. We sell books, of course, but we also serve as neighborhood resources, public gathering spaces, and living networks, connecting creative thinkers, writers, and book lovers across our communities.
North Fig Bookshop is unusual in its collaborative structure, working directly with independent publishers to bring a highly-curated selection of books, events, and programs that guide our customers through the landscape of independent and small press publishing.
The North Fig Membership program helps sustain us through slower times and keeps the community involved in the bookshop. To celebrate our first year in business, we are reworking our membership program to better reflect our collective commitment to providing an outstanding neighborhood bookstore for northeast LA.
Why does North Fig need a membership program?
You’ve heard of a fellow called Jeff Bezos, we presume? Bookselling is a unique and difficult industry for anyone looking to create a sustainable business, much less a profitable one. We rely entirely on the support of our community to survive and continue our work. No matter how many exciting events we host and fresh titles we bring into the shop, there will always be slow days. The funds we raise through our membership program are vital in helping us ride out the lulls and cover unexpected expenses.
Your membership purchase is a vote to keep us in your neighborhood and to give our booksellers the resources to continue their work.
How does it work?
Membership guarantees 10% off everything* in the shop and 20% off signed books and book club selections. Members also get invites to an exclusive annual member party with special discounts and members-only swag.
Simply tell us your name at the register to apply your membership discount to your purchase.
*Discount not valid on periodicals, gift cards, memberships, and already-discounted promotions like book bundles and some subscriptions
*Benefits are valid for one year from date of purchase.
