Deliveries of secondhand and remaindered books arrive daily so there’s always something new to be found on the shelves. The kids’ section is one of the highlights of the shop, featuring picture books, pop-up books, unusual kids’ classics and annuals, and the latest titles for young readers, teenagers and young adults. Charlie Byrne’s is also one of Galway City’s liveliest cultural centres: we arrange and host lots of literary-themed events, such as book launches, author signings, readings, and a weekly Saturday-morning storytime for kids featuring children’s book expert Olivia.
