Darlington Lions Club – Bookshop

For 20 years Darlington Lions Club has had a second hand bookshop in the town raising £80,000 for charity. The Lions bookshop is located in the town centre at 9 Houndgate Mews (in the passageway between BOYES & GURU BOUTIQUE and opposite BINNS) Our books are generously donated by the people of Darlington and outlying villages and we reciprocate by supporting Local charities and individuals who appeal to us for financial help.

We hold a large stock of paperbacks in our fiction section but we have a few shelves devoted to Biographies, Cookery, Sport, Gardening, Health, Science Fiction and many more topics. In an attempt to remain competitive with the plethora of other charity shops in the town, we have pegged our prices at a very reasonable £1.00 for each book, or less for children’s books.

Should you have a surplus of good quality books why not use the “contact us” facility on our website,
and one of our members will be in touch with you to arrange collection at your convenience.

We have already held a successful booksale this year with books priced at 20p and we expect to have more book sales later this year with books again priced at 20p.
