Books' free-for-all in warehouse

Thousands of books were left in the warehouse
People have been invited to help themselves to the books

People in Bristol have been invited to help themselves to free books at a warehouse which were left behind when the owners left the site.

Bookbarn's lease on the premises in Arnos Vale recently expired and when the firm moved out it left behind thousands of books.

Managers of the Paintworks site have invited people to help themselves.

This Bookbarn is in no way connected to the company BookBarn International at Hallatrow in North Somerset.
