We love books

Browsers has been serving their fellow book lovers since ’96

Rachel Pope had a dream of owning and running a secondhand bookshop, and on moving to Hamilton, the dream became reality. Browsers opened its doors in May 1996. Since 2008, Browsers has been 100% locally-owned and operated. All of Browsers’ staff has a passion for books. They are all voracious readers and possess a huge wealth of knowledge in their areas of expertise.
