On Thursday 18th February 2016 The Villlage Bookshop were given the award for Best Social Enterprise in the Teesdale Business Awards (TBA) 2015.  Well done to all of the volunteers and thank you to the TBA and its sponsors.

Welcome to the Village Bookshop Website.

The Village Bookshop is in Middleton-in-Teesdale in County Durham and serves a large rural area in Upper Teesdale. We sell New, Discount and Secondhand Books as well as gifts, maps, classical CD's, postcards and a good range of cards. We have a good selection of books of the local area.  We also have a selection of local tourist information leaflets.

We offer a range of new books, mostly at discount prices, and can order new and second hand books for prompt delivery. We also keep a wide, ever-changing stock of secondhand books for collectors in many subjects, and for those looking for holiday reading. Out of print or rare books can be searched for on your behalf, so if there are any books you are searching for please don't hesitate to contact us.

The shop is run entirely by volunteers.  

The Village Bookshop is run as a charitable Trust.  This means that a good bookshop remains in the village and profits are used to raise funds for local groups
