There are very few things we love more than helping to encourage a love of reading in Children and young people. Last week, we had the opportunity to do so with a group of visiting young adults from Monkton Coombe school in Bath.

The students were just starting out their secondary school education, and had recently enjoyed lessons based on our wonderful Found in Books display, so were very excited to visit us and have a small Q&A session in our Darwin room.


They asked plenty of wonderful questions, and kept our shop team on their toes. They also took some time to explore our shop shelves, and left us with arms full of books to help them with the year's learning.

We look forward to having more students from Monkton Coombe visit us soon.

If you feel that your school would enjoy a visit with us here at Bookbarn, get in touch by giving us a call on 01761 451333, or send an email to
