WELCOME to our shop selling NEW books from a Community Co-operative!

We replaced the famous Harbour Bookshop in Dartmouth when it sadly closed in 2011. It had been started by Christopher Robin Milne in the 1950s. We keep a special 'Pooh Corner' and lots of Winnie the Pooh books to celebrate our connection. You can see photos of the original Pooh bear and A A and Christopher Milne in the shop. We stock the book of the recent film, Goodbye Christopher Robin, and lots more for Pooh fans.

DARTMOUTH COMMUNITY BOOKSHOP is run as a not-for-profit community co-operative, professionally staffed by an experienced manager (Andrea Saunders was the manager in the Harbour Bookshop) with volunteer help. Buy your books from our friendly independent bookshop where you can browse and enjoy the atmosphere.

We have a good selection of NEW books for children of all ages and adults. Our stock is changing all the time. To browse, order and buy new books, come and see us. Orders usually arrive in 24-48 hours. We are happy to give advice and share our favourite reads. We can arrange to post books direct from our wholesaler anywhere in the country.

We also stock greeting cards and unique local postcards. We sell and redeem National Book Tokens.
