Whether you are seeking medicine for the soul, some light holiday reading, forgotten classics, or learned texts, our Summer Book Sale will provide a suitable hunting ground. There will be plenty of books of paperback fiction, biography, history, travel, the arts, architecture, gardening, cookery and much more. Thank you for the donations of books, all sales go towards funding the Holburne Museum.
