Livraria Lello opens the World's first bookshop drive-thru

Friday, April 3, 2020
Livraria Lello, in Porto, opened last Wednesday, April 1st, “the world’s first bookshop drive-thru” and is offering one book per day, which will be selected and announced in advance on its Social Media and here, exclusive page dedicated to the initiative.

Livraria Lello's drive thru will operate from Monday’s to Friday’s, between 10 am and 12 pm (except for holidays and/or other restrictions imposed by the current State of Emergency in which we find ourselves) for an indefinite period. The books to be offered are a series of literature classics and belong to “The Collection”, published by Livraria Lello.

To benefit from this Livraria Lello’s offer, simply register using the online form provided HERE*, until 18:00 of the previous day in which they intend to drive-thru the World’s Most Beautiful Bookshop, and will be receiving subsequently a confirmation email.
(*) IMPORTANT NOTE: due to the extraordinary participation verified, at the moment, we are no longer accepting registrations for the 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th of April.

The delivery will be made by a Livraria Lello employee, who will comply with all safety and hygiene protocols, delivering the books directly through the readers cars windows, motorcycles or bicycles.

Livraria Lello's initiative derives from the official statements of the Minister of Culture, Graça Fonseca, who stated that bookshops can remain open to the public during this state of emergency, as books are a strong contribution to people's mental health.

This action is therefore a true act of ‘Love in the Times of Cholera’ by Livraria Lello and its team towards the readers and the city.
