The Friends of Gressenhall secondhand bookshop, on the left inside the large black BABA entrance gates to the Museum courtyard, is always worth a visit.
Judging by the comments received from both customers and Museum staff alike, the Volunteers’ Team has succeeded in making the Friends’ Bookshop an attractive and friendly place to visit.
This is reflected in the takings which show a healthy increase year upon year.
One of the keys to this success is having a team of very enthusiastic, dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers – now ten in number – who keep the Bookshop immaculate, the shelves well stocked with high quality books, and the customers happy.
We are always very grateful for any donations of good quality books to keep the shelves full and, for this, our sincere thanks must also go to the many people who have donated books so generously.
Our most successful section is Children’s Books, where demand always outstrips supply, so, whilst welcoming all donations of books of any subject, this is the area where our requirement is presently greatest.
We also welcome books of local interest and country life.
Small quantities of donated books may be brought in to the Friends’ Bookshop, but please telephone Bill and Sue Rhodes on 01362 697053 if you would like to make a larger donation or for any queries regarding volunteering.
Thanks to all those who have helped the Bookshop either by volunteering, donating or purchasing books, we look forward to your continuing support.
