Recently relocated, we are delighted to be establishing ourselves as part of the vibrant St. Benedicts Street community. The new shop is light, spacious and perfect for browsing. Expect to find a warm and friendly welcome, fantastic second-hand books, with relaxed seating areas to meet with friends. Not to mention an exciting events programme.
Monday-Saturday: 10am - 5pm
Sunday: 11am - 4pm
We receive regular donations of both new and second-hand books, keeping our shelves constantly changing with exciting new and some not-so-new (and a few rare) titles! We have an eclectic mix of non-fiction both old and current, including a creative writing section, as well as an impressive history and political selection. If it's something less taxing you want, our bays of contemporary fiction are bursting with titles sure to please your taste.
We also have a fabulous range of cards and ethically sourced gifts.
We offer workspace, with plug sockets and free-to-use charging points, where you can study, read or just meet with friends. We even encourage you to bring your own drink and stay for a while!
