Greetings teachers and librarians!


We are Block Shop Books, an independent bookstore in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. We are happy to help with book purchases for school libraries and classrooms! We offer a 20% discount for schools and provide personal assistance with selecting titles appropriate for your target age groups and educational goals. We are happy to assist with customized recommendations for book purchases.

We love talking about books and encourage you to come in to say hello and browse in our store. We specialize in picture books, non-fiction kids’ titles, middle grade fiction, young adult fiction, and graphic novels. We also have an online store - with over 10 million titles available to order - where we can build lists of recommended titles for you based on your requirements and where you can easily create your own wish lists.

Please let us know how we can help you get more fantastic books into local children’s hands! We wish you happy teaching and look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Jo Treggiari and Anne-Marie Sheppard
