About Us

Halligans Books is a bricks and mortar store located in the small kiwi town of Tuakau, located some 8 kilometres from Pokeno or 10 Kilometres from Pukekohe.

Halligan's Books first opened its doors on 17th July 1995 in New Lynn, Auckland, opposite the old clock tower where it successfully traded for over a decade, gaining a reputation of being an alternative specialist.

A life sea-change saw Julie elect to take a sabbatical from the book business and move out of Auckland to raise her sons while becoming part of a small town community where everybody knows your name.

Well the sabbatical is done and 'Hallligan's Books' returns. Sales are only online for now while we sort out the store, build more bookshelves and prepare ourselves for an exciting new chapter in our book journey.

In the interim, here is one of Halligan's Books favourite quotes from one of the 20th century's literary giants -

'IN A TIME OF DECEIT, TELLING THE TRUTH IS A REVOLUTIONARY ACT'
