Rutland books is a bookshop like no other. Their vision is to preserve a reading culture by giving life to second hand books at affordable prices. The variety of books available on the shelves in more than 12 rooms is much wider than many first time visitors ever anticipate. Their emphasis is on books that are clean and in good condition. Customers can also bring books to Rutland books: they purchase or exchange books on a selective basis. Books they cannot use are redistributed to selected charities or other places where they will find a good home.
