We stock over 50,000 books on two floors, a wide range of maps and children’s books and over 15,000 second-hand and antiquarian books. New books can by purchased in store and also through our new online store, for delivery or collection in store. We also stock a number of (new) Bargain Books for adults and children and have a number of special price offers on certain lines including Oxford World Classics and Penguin Classics – only available in store. If you would like to order a book that’s not in stock, please either pop in to see us or give us a call – we’ll do our best.
If you have good quality books to sell – we’re happy to give them a quick appraisal with a fair offer – but please contact us by email or telephone before bringing them in, as we are often inundated. A growing selection of our second-hand and antiquarian books is available through the internet – more details can be found here.
We host a full programme of author events, both in the shop and at large local venues. Recent visitors have included Cressida Cowell, Simon Sebag Montefiore, Nicholas Crane and Joanne Harris (among many others). Over the last 18 months we have been able to sustain our efforts through online events but are now really pleased to be able to offer ‘in person’ visits from authors. For more details, visit our events page here.
As the World’s first Garden City, Letchworth is a particularly attractive town, with much to offer visitors. We stock a wide range of books (both new and secondhand) on the area’s past and present.
