The Amelia Island Book Festival is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization supported by the community through membership and donations. 


The Festival does not have full time employees, however, it does, from time to time, contract out services such as accounting and website management.

The 2020-2021 AIBF Directors are all local residents, and several are authors as well.

Also, several long-time AIBF supporters who are dedicated to AIBF’s mission of promoting literacy have been named to the newly formed Board of Ambassadors.
