About Us

Over twenty five years ago Madeleine Lindley began selling children’s books and teacher resource books to schools in and around Greater Manchester from her home in Chadderton. By the mid-1990s Madeleine Lindley Ltd was firmly established at its current premises on Broadway Business Park, Chadderton, Gt Manchester, as one of the best suppliers to schools in the UK and overseas.

The Book Centre now boasts a range of more than 200,000 books from over 250 publishers and is the teachers’ favourite book supplier.  A team of friendly and helpful staff is always on-hand to provide professional and expert advice uniquely suited to your educational requirements.

At Madeleine Lindley Ltd we keep fully up to date reading, rejecting and selecting the best books for your school and classroom libraries.

The Training and Conference Centre was opened in 2011 adjacent to the Book Centre.  It is a modern , spacious building which is equipped with the latest technology hosting a variety of educational training days  and is available for hire.

Today, Madeleine Lindley is run by Madeleine’s daughters Amelia and Rachelle, both experts in the field of children’s literature, and their team of over 20 staff who are all committed to giving teachers the friendliest and most helpful service when choosing children’s books.

We believe that books by the best authors and illustrators create a positive reading environment in your school.
