At Leanpub, we don't have a purchasing program for libraries. This is for a number of reasons, the main one being that many of our books are published while they are still in-progress.

When a library does express interest in purchasing an individual book, we ask them to contact the author, who makes the decision to sell or not.
Please note that we do love libraries! Leanpub books belong to their authors, not to Leanpub, and we're simply letting our authors choose what they want to do with library sales.

(If you're looking to purchase a Leanpub book on behalf of a library or for institutional purchase of your book, please see this article.)

If you have any questions or thoughts on writing and self-publishing with Leanpub, please join our global community of authors in our Authors Forum here!
