About Oxfam Micklegate

Sitting on one of York’s historic cobbled streets, the Oxfam Micklegate Bookshop resells a myriad of books, films, and music in the name of ending extreme poverty worldwide. We rely on the generous donations of the local and wider communities, where the frequent additions to our shop means that are shelves are blessed with an ever-changing selection to meet your interests and needs.

Come and explore our excellent literature collection to catch up on those classics you never got around to reading, or catch up with the most recent highlights from our adult fiction shelves. Our vast assortment of non-fiction and reference books gives you the chance to read on your interests, whether that might be ancient history, the second world war, or sociology and modern politics. We also hope that our choice of childrens books and teen fiction will continually inspire the younger generations to keep reading and engaging in literature.

Our film collection boasts DVDs both new and old. Whether you’re searching for some Hollywood classics, or the latest blockbusters, we have a broad selection for you to choose from. If you’re on the hunt for some additions to your music collection, then scout out CD shelves spanning classical works to recent pop and rock, or delve into our vinyl donations to rediscover old favourites or explore timeless masterpieces.

We look forward to you visiting our shop in the near future!
