Book Source prides itself on its ability to adapt to the constantly evolving book industry.
Book Ordering Service
From as early as 1989 we established ourselves as leaders in the Caribbean. Book Source was the first company in the region to create a dedicated book ordering service, years before Amazon even hit the market. This service caters to the individual as well as libraries, government and corporate entities, providing single or multiple copies of titles.
We have access to over 15,000 publishers worldwide where books are shipped and arrive within three (3) to seven (7) business days. Book Source’s access to over seven (7) million titles provides a truly useful service for our clients.
Academic Book Store
In 1999, we expanded into academic retail sales with the establishment of a bookstore at the Barbados Community College.
It caters to the needs of over 3,900 students and staff offering required and recommended materials for courses as well as a broad range of services. You can save up to 60% on many books when you shop at the College Bookshop.
Students can rent or purchase print books or eBooks from the store.
The bookshop offers much more than just books. The following items are also available Nursing Uniforms & Lab Coats, Daily Newspapers, Art Supplies (Brushes, paints etc.), Snacks (Fruits juices, candy, sweet biscuits), Postal Stamps (On site Post Box)
Visit our online student bookstore at http://www.campusbooksource.com to view the large selection of titles that are readily available in print and eBook format.
Keeping true to our vision of changing the way people look at books, we have developed an array of services to cater to the public’s needs.
Under this division, we fostered an environment with a more intimate relationship between authors and their fans through our author event services. These services include our popular authors’ evening “Citrus Book and Poetry Night”, our book launches, book signings and author lounges at conferences and expos.
Our appearances at conferences, expos and shows such as D Arts Lime, Barbados Association of Office Professionals Conference (BAOP), the Priority One Business Conference, the Central Bank’s cultural book days, the Food and Beverage Expo, Girlfriends Expo, Barbados Manufacturers Exhibition (BMEX), AnimeKon Convention, Caribbean Festival of Arts (CARIFESTA) and The National Cultural Foundation’s (NCF) Crop Over Read-IN, exposes readers to a wide variety of books.
In marketing on a mass scale, we also feature our authors through the social media, our website, mailing lists, video interviews, television, radio, newspaper and any other medium which provides that extra push.
Along with events targeted to the adult population, we promote the love for reading in young children through appearances at primary schools’ literacy weeks, World Kids Fair and a children’s lounge at BMEX.
