HAPPY EASTER

A very big THANK YOU to all volunteers who've given so freely of their time and energy during our Spring Clean and Stock Take.  Our Pre-Loved Books Sale has been a great success and continues for another week (see below).

Volunteers play a very necessary part in any Community venture and if you feel you have a couple of hours to spare each week we'd be delighted to have you on board!  Call in for a chat.

BOOKS@ONE BIG SPRING SALE

We're extending our Pre-Loved Book Spring Sale by another week! A final chance to bag some amazing second hand book bargains as we make room for more wonderful second hand stock waiting in the wings to find love. Come on in for a browse.

BOOK OF THE MONTH
 

Shaun Bythell runs The Bookshop, Wigtown, Scotland’s largest second-hand bookshop.  He also has a great line in wry comments, witty observations and hilarious anecdotes;

“Don’t say anything stupid,” he overhears one young woman warning her boyfriend, “or he’ll post it on Facebook.” 
You don't have to own a bookshop to appreciate this gem of a book.

 

You'll laugh out loud and then you'll laugh some more..
