Ways to Volunteer

October Books, founded in 1977 and now based on Portswood Road in Southampton, is a not-for-profit co-operative radical neighbourhood bookshop. Any money we make, is ploughed back into the business. We trade independently from any political organisation, and seek to promote a fair and equal society. Our workers and volunteers are from many different backgrounds, and they bring diversity to the shop, so everyone feels at home in October Books.

Our stock is comprised of general popular fiction, non-fiction and children’s books, alongside our traditional range of specialised radical books and magazines. Our specialty areas are social issues, adoption, humanities and political issues. We can order any book in print in the UK, US and Europe, and you can order with us online, or via Hive or Biblio. Alternatively, you can also call into the shop or order by phone.

Over the years, we have expanded our range to greeting cards, organic and fair-trade foods and green household items.

To stay up to date, you can check our news and  go to our Facebook page for events.
