FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD BOOKSHOP

Friday Storytelling!

Get Your Tickets Here!

Books, Cards, Gifts and more

Spread over two floors of an attractive Georgian building, we stock practically every genre. General fiction, classics, sci-fi, history, travel, cookery, poetry and the natural world, OS maps, travel guides and Scottish interest can be found on the ground floor of the building, while all the children's books and toys are in our cosy basement.

We pride ourselves on offering the highest level of customer service and with so many titles in stock, we’re pretty confident that we’ll be able to find the title you’re looking for, as well as a few you didn’t know you wanted! If we don’t have the title you’re looking for in stock, we offer a free ordering service, usually with next day delivery in-store, so please just ask and we can help.

We are winners again! We've just been named Scotland's Best Independent Bookshop of the Year for the second time! In addition, we've been shortlisted for the UK Children's Bookseller of the Year!

THANK YOU for all of your support over the past year, we can't wait to celebrate properly when we reopen!

More than just books!

Our dedicated children’s department Little Owl’s is packed with books toys, games and other goodies – there’s something for every pocket.

There are books for all ages, from new babies to young adult and we’re pretty good at finding the right book for you.

Story-telling sessions with our guinea pigs are every Friday afternoon. The sessions are FREE, but spaces must be pre-booked through our website: https://www.maddingcrowdlinlithgow.com/collections/event-tickets

We also run an organised programme of events throughout the year with author visits in the shop and larger events at external venues.

Our current events programme is all online: we are part of the Wee Three Indies collaboration, so please check the Wee Three Indies facebook page for all details!

In addition, we are happy to coordinate book weeks for schools and one-off author visits: we're looking forward to resuming a full school's programme, including the West Lothian Schools Festival, as soon as it is safe and practical to do so.
