What people are saying about us

"I love Scotia! Twice now they've been hugely helpful to me. The first time I was creating a school library from scratch. They provided effective support and expert advice - without the level of service they provided, I just don't think it would have been possible. Again, five years on, they're just as adaptable, supportive and knowledgable. The discounts they gave us have resulted in extra whole shelves of books in the library. They're totally at home with Accelerated Reader, used to working within a budget and able to advise and give suggestions. Don't buy your books from anyone else!"

"I have been shopping at Scotia Books for a couple of years now with schools. I recently took a group of pupils there to spend money they'd raised through the Scotia Book Challenge. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, explaining how the shop was organized and helping the children spend the sponsor money and to find books by their favorite authors. The children had a great time and are still talking about their visit weeks later. I'd definitely recommend Scotia Books to other schools. The service is second to none."

"Look no further if you’re looking for great service from a bookshop. Popped in today to help them celebrate their 20th birthday and left with a goody bag and a box full of books at a fantastic bargain price. A brilliant family run business ( and a fab toy shop as well). Can’t recommend this local business highly enough just wish I had more money to spend here."

I love visiting Scotia Books as there's always a warm welcome waiting and a huge selection of books to choose from. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful and there's always great offers available. Definitely my first port of call when it comes to buying books for children and young adults.

"Hello ladies, Thank you so much for all your help with our book pick last Tuesday morning. Your help and expertise was incredible and invaluable as we did not have a clue where to start!! The children had a great time helping to select the books for our new school library and are very excited to see it finally all come together now we have a brilliant selection of new books to put in it.
I would definitely recommend your shop and services, it is second to none and made our experience much less stressful and enjoyable.
Thanks again to you all - we'll definitely be back if we can get more money to spend!"
Kind regards,"
