Welcome to the King's Co-op Bookstore, Halifax's only co-operatively run independent bookstore!

Located on campus at the University of King's College, we are a community owned and operated bookstore that features great books of all kinds along with creative gift items for you or the booklovers in your life. We also run a podcast for book lovers called Bookings, where we talk to authors and scholars about their books.

Pay us a visit in the Academic Building on the King's Campus or shop online with our webstore. Any items we currently don't have in stock we would be happy to special order for you!

Bookings Podcast FeatureSee more
This time on Bookings, poet and journalist Lindsay Bird discusses her new book of poetry “Boom Time,” published by Gaspereau Press. “Boom Time” tells the story of a young woman in the mid-2000s as she moves to Fort McMurray to work in the Athabasca oil sands. Like many, she’s there to make money in the new gold rush, but the camps can be a disorienting place. Sublime and dangerous. Lindsay discusses her own time in the work camps, the people, landscape, and giant machines. And as always, Lindsay, Paul, and Jesse discuss what they’re reading.
