we are delighted to be celebrating the 18th World Book Day in Ireland on Thursday 5th March 2015. Over the last 18 years World Book Day has become firmly established as Ireland’s biggest annual event promoting the enjoyment of books and reading. The main aim is to encourage children to explore the pleasure of books and reading by providing them with an opportunity to have a book of their own. This may sound like a very simple idea, but unfortunately, many children do not have access to books in their homes.
It’s autumn time again ,all the children are back in school and we start to think about Halloween and in the back of our minds Christmas is looming!
The big books for the coming season are bound to be sports biographies again.

You can save huge amounts on your book costs by trading in your used books (in good condition only ) and buying other used books. You can buy all new ones if you want as we stock all the new books too. We are very competitive with our prices .
We also stock all the stationery you will need for school such as calculators, plastic folders in plain and bright patterns, hardback notebooks, manuscripts and copies, pens and pencils , pencil cases and school bags.
