    Independent bookstores are important insofar as they make the ordering/customer service aspects as painless and hassle free as possible.
    The next thing is to the actually part of the community so sponsoring writing workshops, events like kids reading etc.
    And finally be the neighbourhood publisher of ebooks. Let people come by and publish an ebook that they can give away or sell. The bookstore could even get a very small cut for each sale thereby encouraging a micropublisher
