Baker & Taylor is the leading supplier of library content, software and services to public and academic libraries in the U.S. We also provide sales, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution support to small and mid-sized publishers through our Publisher Services business.
Founded in 1828, Baker & Taylor began by binding and publishing books and later expanded into distributing books, originally by horse-drawn carriage. Since then, we’ve grown our focus and efforts to harness the power of technology and digitization to develop progressive and innovative services that promote the progress and success of your library. Based in Charlotte, N.C., Baker & Taylor is an independent, privately held company. We feel privileged to partner with more than 5,000 libraries and to support our library and publishing partners as they advance literacy in communities worldwide.
Our mission is to help our library partners inspire and serve their communities through literacy and learning. By providing libraries with access to a multitude of formats and titles, we help our library partners meet their patrons where they are at in their lives.
