Our second-hand bookshop helps to raise money for ongoing conservation projects all around Castle Ward and is run thanks to our dedicated team of volunteers.
Thanks to generous donations from our visitors and the local community, the bookshop is full of fantastic titles in every genre you could imagine. There's a wide range of books to suit everyone, pick up a novel to enjoy in the sun, get inspired by a travel guide, find new recipes in our cookery section, and take home some new bedtime stories for the kids.
The bookshop is managed by our volunteers and is open during our normal open times. There's usually a smiling face to welcome you in, and at times when there's nobody available to volunteer in the bookshop you are still more than welcome to browse, and we ask that you leave a donation for your purchases in at reception or in the honesty box.
Making a donation
We’re always grateful for all the donations as the sale of the books directly helps with the upkeep of Castle Ward. If you'd like to make a donation please phone us on 028 4488 1204, or you’re welcome to call into the bookshop when we’re open.
If you're a bookworm and would like to join our bookshop volunteer team, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on 028 4488 1204 to speak to our Volunteer Manager.
Please note: The Bookshop regrets that it cannot accept any further donations of soft or hard-backed novels because of a lack of storage space.
