St. Martin’s Charity Bookshop

Welcome to the St. Martin’s Bookshop website.

We do not have a searchable on-line catalogue of our stock, but we shall be pleased to check our shelves to see if we have any title you are looking for. Phone 01202 419 119  during opening hours or email your wants list to our manager at

Please note that shop opening hours are subject to the availability of volunteers (we have no paid staff). To avoid disappointment and a wasted journey it is advisable to phone the shop (01202 419 119) before coming in.

We have a good general stock of reasonably priced books, including popular fiction and English classics, non-fiction (especially history and biography) and general reference books.

We welcome donations of good quality books (especially paperback fiction) but please understand that we have to be selective: we cannot accept damaged or soiled books (we have to pay for the disposal of such items). Please telephone before coming in.

If you live in the Bournemouth area and are interested in volunteering, we have a permanent need for part-time volunteers. For further information email the chairman at or phone 01202 547054
