We are sorry if you missed our BookBenches

Wednesday the 24th September, 2014

We would like to apologise to any of our BookBench enthusiasts who have missed any of the BookBenches they particularly wanted to see. 

The removal of the heavy benches is a very complicated logistical process due to a range of different factors including availability of forklift trucks and restrictions around public areas. Therefore we have had to stagger the removal dates and a few benches had to be removed before 15 September. 

We apologise for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused and we hope it has not impaired your enjoyment of Books about Town. 

A few of our BookBenches remain, so for the final day of BookBench hunting, here’s a list of benches you can spot today. These final BookBenches will be removed on the morning of Tuesday 16 September.

Bloomsbury trail:
James Bond stories
Always try to be a little kinder than is necessary
Pride and Prejudice
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe 
Jeeves and Wooster Stories
Rest Your Stalks 
Sherlock Holmes stories
Mrs Dalloway
Around the World in Eighty Days

As much as we would have liked to keep our BookBenches on the trails for everyone to enjoy, they are now being prepared for our charity auction on October 7 to raise vital funds for our work to give disadvantaged children the literacy skills to succeed in life. 

Remember, you can ensure your favourite BookBench goes to the perfect home!
