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, bought 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.
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.
#TheBritishBookAwards Timberbooks was selected as a Country Finalist for 'Independent Bookshop of the Year' by The British Book Awards 2021.
COVID-19 update: We are delighted to advise that our high street shop has now re-opened on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm to 5pm. Private shopping appointments are also available outwith these times. We look forward to welcoming you back!
Update October 2021: As we near 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. Michèle (Owner, Timberbooks)
