Set up in 1998, our Cambridge bookshop has become a well-established and much loved part of the Mill Road community. It is run by dedicated and passionate volunteers, is always brimming with a wide range of fiction and non-fiction thanks to brilliant local donations, and is a space where everyone is welcome.

Opening hours:

Monday-Saturday: 11am - 5pm
Sunday: 12pm - 4pm

Our shelves are always changing thanks to the wonderful donations that we receive, and you can expect to find well-stocked sections, with particular strengths in art, philosophy, history and the social sciences. You can also browse a selection of rare and unusual books, as well as Greek and Latin texts, sheet music, maps and a decent foreign languages section.

Alongside the books we also sell a range of greeting cards and branded Amnesty products, as well as a wider ethical gift offer at Christmas.

We are always looking for people to join our volunteer team. If you want to learn more there is a bit more about volunteering in Amnesty bookshops here,  to find out about the vacancies we have email or pop in for a chat.
