About Us

High Street Books was established in 1999 in High Street Post Office, and now has 3 branches on Corks Southside. We are a progressive and modern company dedicated to providing a comprehensive educational support service. All our members of staff are aware of the availability of the latest educational titles, revision programs and past exam papers. As specialists in the schoolbook and educational sector we carry school supplies on a year round basis and because we are a dedicated schoolbook shop we know we can deliver your school books with an accurate service based on years of experience.

Book Rental

High Street Books organise a growing number of rental schemes for both Primary and Secondary level. If you would like information on setting up a rental scheme in your school or you are shopping around for a better deal then please contact marie@highstreetbooks.ie to discuss the options available. Marie is the HSB expert on Book Rentals. Marie organised her childrens book rental scheme for over 10 years.

School Book Sale In Your School

During the summer months, we travel to schools in Cork City and County selling schoolbooks directly in your school. Here we provide the necessary books and stationery for all classes in your school at a convenient time and location. Commission is paid to School or to the Parents Association, so this is a great way to fundraise. We accept Cash, Credit/ Debit Cards and HSB Saving Stamps at the book sales. If you would like to know more about this service then please contact laura@highstreetbooks.ie. There are limited times and dates available so contact us early to secure a date.

HSB Saving Stamps

In 2010 we launched our Savers Club. Our €5 saving Stamps and Savers Cards are available from our 3 shops and at a growing number of participating schools. A full card is €100 but you can save however much or little as you like. Stamps can be cashed in at any time and for any amount(in store only).

Teacher Resource Centre

In April 2013, HSB opened a dedicated Teacher Resource Centre in our head office, just off the Kinsale Road Roundabout. We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive educational support service so we have now created a space just for teachers. All year round teachers can view primary titles from all the leading publishers along with a comprehensive range of supplementary material. We are familiar with all the different teaching initiatives and stategies. Contact 0214319113 for further information.
