About Us

Bookends of Emsworth is owned by Jo Bray, who previously worked for many years at Heffers bookshop in Cambridge. She took over from Carol Waldron who ran Bookends for 38 years, originally in Havant but for the last 19 years in Emsworth.

In addition to a carefully selected range of secondhand books, Bookends has a reputation as a stockist of high quality greetings cards.

Bookends also acts as ticket agents for Wemsfest and Emsworth Music Club, and as a collection point for ‘Pantry Weigh’ deliveries for local customers.
