Welcome to Books At One
Books at One is a collective of locally managed community bookshops. We are a social enterprise ,investing profits in fostering a love of reading for learning, pleasure and connection.
Our bookshops act as social and creative hubs, offering a welcoming, comfortable space where people of all ages come together through a shared love of reading.
We offer a wide range of accessible and diverse literature and believe there is a book for everyone regardless of economic , educational or social status.
By working collaboratively with local businesses, schools and voluntary organisations we give local people an opportunity and a reason to shop locally for books.
We operate in areas of social disadvantage or rural isolation , providing employment , work experience and value added volunteering opportunities.
Our first community bookshop was established in Louisburgh, Co. Mayo in 2016, followed by Books At One in Letterfrack, Co. Galway in 2020. We are currently working with the Dublin 8 community to bring Books At One to Meath Street in 2021.
