The Original Charity Library continues to be the largest English language library on the Costa Blanca, which was established in Javea Port in 1971 and now lives in Javea Park on the Arenal Javea. It has thousands of books, the majority are fiction, by numerous well-known and popular authors, and we regularly try to buy new titles by modern-day writers. We also have books in many specialised categories i.e., Biographies, Crime, History & War, etc. We also have a collection of CD talking books. We always have BOOKS FOR SALE (including children’s and foreign language [mainly Spanish] books) from 25 cents, and DVDs 1 euro and music CDs at 4 for 1 euro. Our stock is being added daily for you to borrow or buy. We also sell a large selection of greeting cards.
3 months = 10 euros
6 months = 18 euros
12 months = 32 euros
As part of The Original Charity Shop and Library all profits go to charity – click on the donations link for more details. Donations of books are also welcome.
ALL our helpers are volunteers and additional volunteers are always welcome.
We regularly hold outdoor BOOK SALES at various venues throughout Javea and surrounding areas. One of our very popular venues is “Overseas Supermarket” (Iceland) Javea. We always have a Book Stall at the monthly Saturday Javea Park Fair and from time to time have a Book Stall outside our Charity Shop on Carrer Nancy, Platja de l’Arenal. The last two years have been very difficult for the whole Charity due to the Covid pandemic and we have need of all the support and donations possible. The Charity Library is a fund-raising organisation but is also a service to the English speaking community in the Northern Costa Blanca area and therefore we ask everyone who can in that area, to join the Library or buy our For Sale items.
