Shipping Information


“Thank you for sending me a copy of your book. I’ll waste no time reading it.” - Moses Hadas


We try to use recyclable and recycled materials for our packaging. Where possible, we like to reuse packaging as well.


We aim to dispatch your books within 2 working days.

We calculate our postage according to weight, to try to make it as cheap as possible:

For orders up to 250g (most thinner books):

Royal Mail 2nd Class: £1.85

For orders between 251g and 2kg (thicker books - up to approximately 4 paperbacks or 3 hardbacks):

Royal Mail 2nd Class: £2.95

For orders over 2kg:

DPD: £5

**Free local collection from Castleford: You will receive an email with our collection address when your item is ready. **

This will automatically be calculated as you add items to your basket, so you will know prior to checking out what your postage costs are likely to be.

**We know that our postage costs may seem high compared to some other places, but please bear in mind that we are a small business, and so do not have the same advantages that some of the larger companies do. We like the personal touch at Little Bird Library and so we put plenty of love and care into each of our packages.


Thank you.**
