Books for Amnesty York
Following the announcement of a further national lockdown we have closed our doors once more, in line with government guidance.
We look forward to when restrictions change and we are able to welcome you back in the bookshop again. We’ll update this page and our social media feeds as soon as we have news, so do keep checking.
In the meantime, some of our online shops are still open. Visit our Books for Amnesty York Amazon shop to keep your shelves topped up.
Please don’t leave donations by the shop whilst we are closed. We will let you know when we are able to take them again.
Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe, and see you very soon!

Come along to browse and buy the best in:
