Books for Amnesty Kentish Town

The Amnesty Bookshop in Kentish Town is OPEN!

We’re delighted to be able to welcome all you book lovers back to the shop, seven days a week, though our hours remain somewhat restricted to allow for thorough cleaning of the shop and the re-stocking of shelves:

Mon – Sat, 11am – 5pm

Sun, 12-4pm

We’re once again taking donations on Tuesdays and Fridays, which allows for 72hr quarantine period, just to be extra safe, and if you’re bringing 3 or more bags/boxes, we advise you to call, or email, the shop and book space in our quarantine zone as it fills up very quickly.

Follow us on social media for news, up-dates, and the very best of our New Arrivals. You can also buy books via Instagram and Twitter, and we finally have our postal service up-and-running too (UK only), so no need to be local to snap up a rare find.

DM us for details. Payments via Paypal.

We’re also currently looking for volunteers for the summer months. If you’re interested, download an application form on the website, and email it over to us, or pop into the shop for a hardcopy.
