We are pleased to announce that we will once again be able to open our doors on Monday 12th April. Goverment guidlines will be in place and we ask that all our customers respect these. While we will still offer free delivery in Lewes this will be reviewed at the end of April.

Normal opening hours of 9am – 5.30pm will resume on this date.

We look forward to welcoming you all back.

To comply with the new Goverment restrictions Bags of Books will be operating a collection and delivery service only.
