We are an award winning independent bookshop in a fabulous three storey timber framed shop built in 1573. The bookshop opened in 2011 and has two floors of new books, tabletop games, comics and a large room dedicated to children’s books. We want to connect people to books, help children to develop a lifelong love of reading and to encourage conversation around books and reading. We also support local schools with a friendly, quality service and are happy to talk about books all day long.
Donating books to schools
Gifting books to schools is a wonderful way to support reading for all children. Teachers welcome a lasting gift of a book as a thank you gift to enjoy and to share in the classroom. Here are some schools we support:
Thongsley Fields Primary and Infants School: here
Holmecourt School: here
Melbourn Village College: here
