Where we work - Botswana
Welcome to John Smith’s International, Botswana’s leading academic book supplier

Originally established in 2002 to provide quality book and retail services to the University of Botswana, we are now the single largest stockist and suppliers of books and academic materials in the region.

Our flag ship store is Books Botswana, at the University of Botswana, is very much a local company but we are also proud of our heritage as part of the JS Group which has been supplying books to Universities for more than 250 years. Included within the JS Group is Hammicks professional and legal services and we count many business and corporations in Botswana amongst our clientele.

Alongside our retail stores is a team dedicated to the supply of books to libraries and wholesale customers. If a book isn’t in stock we can order it especially for you.

Although located inside the University of Botswana and Limkokwing campuses, anyone can use our stores and services to purchase books. Alongside our core academic stocks we also carry a wide range of reading material for all age levels and a large range of quality general titles and books of local interest.

With great prices and a money back guarantee to our customers that if they can find a book cheaper anywhere else we’ll refund the difference, JS Botswana is the place to visit for all your academic book and material requirements.
