‘We want to spread the story’: new bookshop opening on Meath Street

A new bookshop in a small chain that aims to serve disadvantaged areas is soon to open in the Liberties.

Third in a network supported by the One Foundation, the new Books at One is due to open in March at 74/75 Meath Street, previously the site of a butcher shop.

Books at One is a collective of locally managed bookstores – the first opened in 2016 in Louisburgh, Co Mayo, and the second in Letterfrack, Co Galway, in 2020.

The Books at One bookshops are meant to act as a social and creative hub and offer a welcoming and comfortable environment for people of all ages.

“It’s a part of a non-profit organization that’s bringing bookshops to socially disadvantaged areas where you wouldn’t find a commercial bookshop,” says Joanne Hunter, manager of the Letterfrack shop.  

Books at One offers a wide range of accessible and diverse literature, including a range of dyslexia-friendly books.

“What we want to do now is to spread the story and bring this wonderful concept to every county in Ireland,” Hunter says.

“The staff are very kind and the books are cheaper then other places,” Zak Moradi, a volunteer at Books at One, adds.
