Bookends is a family-run, independent bookshop set in a rambling 5-storey Georgian building shared with second-hand bookshop Bookcase and the cafe and garden of Cakes & Ale in historic Carlisle. Our family business started in 1978. We specialise in Cumbrian books and feature well over 1700 titles on our own website https://bookscumbria.com.
We love being part of Carlisle's thriving cultural community and hold regular events, reading groups, poetry groups, Tipsy Filly gin'n 'book nights, storytimes, quizzes and competitions! Find out more by visiting our Linktree profile https://linktr.ee/bookscumbria
