Salisbury Community Bookshop


Salisbury Community Bookshop is a treasure trove of bargain books for all ages, housed in a former grenade factory in the heart of Salisbury’s industrial hub on Chrome Street.

From bombs to books, this World War II era shed has been transformed into a cute, secondhand bookshop by the Salisbury Community Group, created when Cystic Fibrosis closed the doors of their well-loved book store on Ainsworth Street.

Run by dedicated volunteers and stocked solely by donations, this non-profit shop is chockers full of paperbacks and hardcover books for bibliophiles of all ages.

Nooks and crannies are lined with tall, metal shelves filled with books across all genres; from classic literature and science-fiction to romance novels and self-help books on cooking, gardening, travel and more.

There’s even a dedicated section for young adults and a cute kid’s zone with bright red shelves and soft, padded floor.
