BAS Community Bookshelf

There are so many wonderful books about autism but it can be hard to find them in your local library so we have set up the Bristol Autism Support Community Bookshelf to make it easier. This bookshelf has been created so we can share books and resources about autism and neurodivergence. You can borrow books or donate books for others to enjoy.

Take a book

If you see a book that is of interest please take it home and have a read. When you are done you can return it so someone else can enjoy it. Books can be returned to any BAS event, Knowle West Media Centre or the Imperial Sports Ground Bookshelf.

Leave a book

If you have a book you would like to pass on please donate it to the bookshelf. You can just place it on the bookshelf or give it to a BAS team member at any of our events. Please only leave books or resources related to Autism, SEND and Neurodivergence.

In 2023 our founder Kate Laine Toner became a published author with her fantastic book Where Do I Start so we made sure to add a copy to the bookshelf. We also have copies of Andrew Powell’s (from Diverse) book Autism: Understanding and Managing Anger and a selection of BAS Member Charlotte Olson’s Suzie Books. Thanks to everyone that has donated so many fantastic books to get us going.
