News — The Book Base is now open!


Borrow, Swap, Donate!

Now open at The Friary, The Book Base will provide a space to take time to relax and pick up a preloved book for free. The Book Base is located in the Food Court, so perfect for taking time out to browse and borrow a new book to take home. The aim of this community library is to be a green sustainable local service which also enables everyone the opportunity to recycle their preloved books allowing others to either borrow it or simply swap it for one they have donated.


We still need your preloved books!

By opting to keep a preloved book in circulation, we are all making a choice which is actively preventing the book going to landfill. And whilst we are unable to undo the emissions from their initial production, we can all do our bit to ensure a carbon neutral future by keeping our old unwanted books from needlessly going to waste after a single use.

So, to keep the shelves of ‘The Book Base’ fully stocked, we really need your help. We require all sorts of books that are in good condition for both adults and kids.

Please drop off your donated preloved books at The Book Base in the Food Court on level 3 and simply pop them on the shelves or in the boxes.
