We welcome donations of books in good condition and can arrange for large collections of books to be picked up.

Please note the bookroom will be closed between Friday 15 December 2017 to Sunday 4 February 2018 where we will be unable to accept drop off donations or pick up large donations.

During this time you can leave your book donations in the blue bin located at the front of 146 Burren Street, Newtown. Please contact us for further details.
