We are open 7 days a week. Monday to Friday 9am-5.30pm; Sundays 11.30am-4.30pm



Throughout the year we have a regular programme of events in the shop and other venues in Ilkley.

These include author signings, readings, afternoon teas and quizzes, with authors of local and national renown. Readings and book launches are usually on Thursday evenings, and tickets can be obtained from the shop.



We had lots of people here for the Yorkshire launch of Ruby Cowling's new collection of short stories, This Paradise, published by Boiler House Press. It was a lovely evening and signed copies of the book are now available in the shop.


Thursday 16th May @ 7pm

We had a wonderful evening with poet K.M. Herbert and illustrator Sussi Louise Smith as we celebrated the launch of their new publication, Between the Spaces. The collection is available in the shop now, £12.99.
