Our Purpose


Attic Books is a locally owned independent bookshop committed to offering a quality selection of new and affordable bargain books, as well as gifts and educational items for customers of all ages and backgrounds.

We are passionate about the written word and seek to share our love of reading to help create and sustain a community of lifelong readers.

We strive to provide a hospitable and nurturing environment to encourage the healthy exchange of ideas with different stakeholders with interests in books.

We are committed to engaging with the many diverse peoples and organizations of our community, particularly in Nairobi, but also on a national and international scale, to work towards the goals of a knowledgeable public and a peaceful and environmentally sustainable planet.


Reading is awesome. We are committed to working with schools, communities and partners around the world to give people the literacy skills they need to succeed in life.

We believe it is our duty to empower one another, to unlock our potential to improve the lives of all. Our ability to achieve should not be defined by where we were born or what resources we were fortunate enough to have around us. We work to “re-define” this by collaborating with a network of partners around the world to achieve our goal of improving literacy wherever we see that access and opportunity are limited.


Books are awesome. We are committed to sharing our passion for books and stories with the world.

We love books. The escape they offer. The learning they inculcate, the imagination they set free. As a retailer, we want to share our passion for books by making every single book we can lay our hands on available to everyone, wherever they are.

Millions of books, awesome value
We have millions of books to choose from, old and new. When you have chosen your next read you have the choice to buy it new or, for millions of books, you can select a used copy at an awesome price.
