Norfolk Children's Book Centre has been established now for almost 35 years and continues from strength to strength as word-of-mouth recommendations ripple on! We are an assembled team of ex-Teachers, ex-Headteachers, Librarians and Book Enthusiasts. We carefully review and select the best books from over 70 publishers. We only stock the best, and we take pride in our carefully-curated 60,000-book stock.
If you want to have books invoiced for your school, please buy books for your school direct from us! Contact us via phone (01263761402) or email ([email protected]). Your order will be given 10% discount and free delivery.
Alongside our award-winning shop, we offer a wide range of services to schools, from hand-picked Approval Collections to complete Library Rejuvenation! For information, please visit our website at ncbc.co.uk or contact us via phone (01263761402) or email ([email protected]).
Our topic lists on Bookshop.org represent a tiny glimpse into our fantastic shop, but if you can't make it to the shop, buying via our Bookshop.org page is a great way of supporting us. Please follow us on facebook, twitter & instagram to hear about new lists, offers and other news.
