I ransack public libraries, and find them full of sunk treasure.

Charity Book Shop

Linen Hall Library Charity Book Shop

The Linen Hall Library is a unique institution and to help secure our future we have diversified our streams of income. One of the ways you can support the Library is through our Charity Book Shop.

We are now up and running at our new location at Fountain Centre, College Street (just around the corner from our Fountain Street entrance - pictured are bookshop volunteers Sean McKenna and Oscar Ross at the new location). We look forward to seeing you there!

Become a Volunteer

The Charity Book Shop would not be possible without the help of our band of book-loving volunteers; if you would like to volunteer please contact the Library and your details will be forwarded to our Volunteer Coordinator.


The Charity Book Shop relies on your generous donations. Small donations can be left directly into the shop but, if you have larger donations, please contact our Deputy Librarian, Monica Cash (T: 028 9032 1707; E: m.cash@linenhall.com) at the Library. While we appreciate you considering the Library to be the recipient of your donation please be aware we are unable to collect donations.

Please Note: Unfortunately we are unable to accept, encyclopaedias, Readers Digest and text books.

Charity Book Shop opening hours are:

Monday – Friday:    9.00am – 5.00pm

If the shop is closed book donations can be left in the Library.


Thank you for your continued support!
