JUST A BIT ABOUT US
Books@One was founded in August 2016 - the brainchild of
One Foundation, and part of a new movement of independent ‘Destination Bookshops’ where we don’t just sell you a book, we’re a place to visit, in which to become immersed and where you can participate in community events. Somewhere to find out what’s going on in the area (and the world!) or to just relax and enjoy a coffee, a browse and a chat.
This is an atmosphere in which people engage with books in a communal way again. Our passion is Books and we want to re-create the way people loved and treasured them before. Being a community bookshop we want everyone (non-bibliophiles welcome, but we can't promise not to try and convert you...just a little...) to enjoy this space and we promote “good old-fashioned” reading to kids and anyone else we encounter. We aren’t Luddites, we recognise the value of modern gadgets and gizmos and we’re about encouraging children and teens to put down their devices once in a while and become immersed in the many sensory pleasures of a real-life book.
So, what's keeping you?
We'll look forward to our encounter.
