Bristol Book Barn gives away thousands of books

The owner of the premises rented by The Book Barn, the UK’s largest used book warehouse (Central Trading Estate, Bath Road, BS4 3EH), are inviting the public to help themselves to thousands of books stored at their premises. The business, like many others, has been forced to close its doors for business. Instead of handing stock over to a liquidation company, the landlord has decided, ingeniously,  to allow the public to stock up on their favourite titles free of charge.

The warehouses shelves are bare as books have been scattered across the floor as readers hunt for their choice of literature.

A notice on their website:

Books’ free-for-all in warehouse

Thousands of books were left in the warehouse
People have been invited to help themselves to the books

People in Bristol have been invited to help themselves to free books at a warehouse which were left behind when the owners left the site.

Bookbarn’s lease on the premises in Arnos Vale recently expired and when the firm moved out it left behind thousands of books.

Managers of the Paintworks site have invited people to help themselves
