TIMBERBOOKS is an independent high-street bookshop in West Kilbride, North Ayrshire, Scotland. Established in 2007, we now operate from a Victorian church and church hall called Overton, purchased from the Church of Scotland in 2013. We sell quality new, second-hand and antiquarian books and book-related items. We strive to support local authors and publishers. Timberbooks was selected as a Country Finalist for 'Independent Bookshop of the Year' at #TheBritishBookAwards both in 2021 and 2022.
SHOP OPENING HOURS (updated 25 April 2022): We are delighted to announce that our high street bookshop will re-open this Wednesday (27 April), following almost two months of refurbishment (the shop) and recovery from COVID (the owner). We would like to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us during this closure by choosing Timberbooks here on uk.Bookshop.org!
Our normal opening hours are: Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm to 5pm. Private shopping appointments are normally also available outwith these times. We look forward to welcoming you back!
Book Search: If you can't find the book you're looking for here, please check our other website www.timberbooks.co.uk or e-mail us at [email protected] and we'll happily undertake a complimentary book search for you.
What we've done with our commission from Bookshop.org so far (December 2021): At the 1st Anniversary of Bookshop.org in the UK, we'd like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has chosen to support us here. With our commission since we joined we've bought 20 new (extra) bookcases and we've also been able, at last, to commission a new boiler for the bookshop - so you're now assured of an even warmer welcome! All this has been made possible by you choosing to support us here, and we are very, very grateful.
