Frequently asked questions?



1. What is dolphinBOOKSHELF? is the site of a project to deliver more children's books into Children's Centres and community buildings.


We sell you beautiful books and woven willow baskets to display them in.


2. Can I sell the books?


Absolutely, that is what they are for.


Every time we refresh your basket(s)

we invoice you or give you a cash receipt for audit

...see next column.


3. What do I sell them for?


You sell them for £2 or above...


4. Do I make a surplus to contribute to the running costs of my Centre or community building?


Yes you can, by adjusting the cover price of your books.


Thank you!


You're welcome.


5. Do I need to buy another willow basket every time I order books?


No - each basket becomes your 'point of display'. The basket in your first delivery is free.  

We refill it, or them, from then on.


6. Can I buy more baskets for my community kitchen or as storage for the community library?


Certainly, just contact us or email and we'll quote you a price and a delivery date.


10. How will I track my sales?


Every book basket comes with a dolphinBOOKSHELF Admin Box, if you need it.


In practice, most book basket customers just refresh their titles and cash up then, as needed , from their own records. We can help you establish a system that works, from our experience.


A slim rigid container that contains book order forms, your stock/sales sheets and somewhere to put all our fabulous bookmarks and extra book orders from parents and carers as they arrive.


It is really easy to mark down your sales on the form (and the payment) and keep track of the cash - the form matches your stock delivery.


11. Who looks after my cash?


You do.


12. Is there a person at your end of the computer?


There certainly is.
