Who We Are

Welcome to The Book Stop's Here. We are an independent bookshop serving St Helens and surrounding boroughs. Our bookshop is owned by the community and most importantly; exists for the benefit of the community. 

Our aim is to create a thriving community hub in which everyone feels safe and welcome. We host a coffee shop run by 2 Brothers Coffee, offering award-winning tea, coffee, and delicious cakes and we host a wide range of events, including adult & children’s reading groups, book clubs and author signings.

 

We stock a wide range of new books, both fiction and non-fiction with over 5,000 titles in store and are able to order in most books within 24 hours for customer orders.

Check out our very first podcast!

With the generous help of our friends and partners at St Helens Coalition of Disabled People - Buzz Hub, we've published our very first podcast. Special thanks go to David and Sophie for their patience and expertise in editing and compiling this piece.

 

We collaborated with local author and historian Sue Gerrard, scientist Matt Eyres and graphic artist Alan Cowsill to discuss the rise of AI and it’s impact on authors, artists and the creative community.
