Open Monday to Saturday for books, cards, jazz on CD and gifts...

We’ve been selling books to the good folks of Newark and surrounding villages since 1994.

Starting out on paste tables, as a temporary bookstall in the Town Hall, we’ve weathered the ongoing changes in the way people read and buy books some 20+ years later.

Specialising in books for children and young adults, we also stock local titles, history, travel and literature, including school texts.

If we don’t have the book you’re after, give us a day or so and we’ll have it for you with our Super Order Service.

So whether you want to order an educational text or a gift; find out about local history or research your next holiday destination; listen to new jazz on CD or buy a gift bag and a card – we’ve got what you need…

There's always something happening at Stray's - new stock, new CD's, Author events...

Here's what's selling in Newark:
