You have just logged on to what is probably the most useful and valuable source of second-hand Salvation Army books. Bookworm Alley is based in Hadleigh, Essex in the UK, and has a wide selection of SA books, music and memorabilia.
Bookworm Alley has been run by Lt-Col. Joan Williams for more than 15 years. In this time she has helped many young people as well as a number of Salvation Army projects in India from the funds that she has raised. Joan has now decided to retire from running Bookworm Alley and handed over responsibility to Philip Hendy. Philip is a Salvationist in the UK with a real interest in Salvation Army History. At present a new library is being built in Hadleigh to provide a home for the many books and memorabilia that was handed over from Joan. The library should be completed by May 2016 and will cater for personal visitors. In the mean-time it is possible to provide a postal service for purchases, however, we would ask for your understanding during these next few months.
Bookworm Alley is pledged to continue to use the profits raised from the sale of books and memorabilia to meet the needs of some of the people whom the Salvation Army is working with in India.
