Our partnership

is a member of

these organisations

Brought to you by Dolphin Booksellers, part of SmithMartin Partnership LLP as an initiative to bring books into Children’s Centres and community buildings.


We wanted a place for books to be part

of the Centre, for children and families

to sit and read together.


Time to look and to buy a book, or simply to

have a chance to read in comfort when the children are happy too.


It will also support the Centre by receiving a discount on all books sold.


Contributing to your sustainability.


Links to a whole range of literacy ideas and projects too will help the Centre to keep literacy at the heart of its work and bring a whole new world into the building.

Every basket comes with our Reading Support Pocket Packs

New Autumn titles

Big books

Small footprint
