NORFOLK CHILDREN'S BOOK CENTRE
We hope that you and your families are all safe and well during these challenging times. As you may be aware from our social media, whilst the shop remains closed to the public, Marilyn has been busy working every day, selecting and packing up orders for customers and schools. With her incredible knowledge and enthusiasm for children’s books and over three decades of experience as a librarian and children’s bookseller, Marilyn is also offering a remote recommendation service to anyone who calls (01263 761402), emails (email@example.com) or gets in touch via social media.
As anyone who is a regular customer knows, Marilyn and her team are able to conjure up huge piles of books based on your preferences and specifications when you visit the shop. Whilst we are closed to the public, Marilyn has been able to chat to her customers via phone and email and offer recommendations in much the same way as we would normally. For example, if your child loves books with dinosaurs in, Marilyn can pick out all the great storybooks or picture books, or non-fiction topic books, about dinosaurs, and send you a photo or her findings. The customer is then free to “browse” the covers and decide whether they would like to buy any of the books. If they would like more information, they can get in touch with Marilyn again – she is always happy to chat about children’s books.
The book centre has around 60,000 books in stock at any time, so if you have a particular book in mind, get in touch! Marilyn can also order in any book in print to be delivered to you (including adult books for parents who also need something to read during lockdown!)
Our school supply services are running as normal. Please browse the website for more information about our very popular approval collections, school library support and orders or get in touch with Marilyn to find out more information personally.
We look forward to hearing from you!
