We set up a number of in-school author events in direct collaboration with individual schools. We also have a number of authors visiting us - you can find out what's going on at our events page.

For young children we have regular weekly storytime which takes place every Thursday and Friday 11am and Saturday at 10am. We also have a number of book clubs over the weekend.

Staff knowledge and expertise underpins all our work. Their dedication, enthusiasm and hard work are key and their love of children's books crucial. Our approach - now as in previous years - is built on enthusiasm for books with a strong commitment to getting more books to more readers, and always the right book to the right child.

 

 

Whether we are taking high profile authors to large scale events, or making the time to read a story to a small child whose carer needs a chance to browse, we believe the most important element of our shop is our relationship with our customers.
