The Book Garden offers a range of services tailored towards teacher librarians and schools. Our staff collectively have over 60 years experience in the book and education sector, and each has an outstanding knowledge of books for all different age groups, reading levels, and interests, as well as specialty areas of expertise. We want to share this knowledge with you and support the essential work done by teachers and teacher librarians in building life-long readers.

Special Orders

We know that schools often have specific books that they require and that need to be ordered, either as replacements for well-loved titles that have fallen apart or on the specific request of a student or teacher. Our team makes ordering easy - we process special orders from schools every day and, if a book is available, we know where to find it! Simply contact us at

Sales Representative Visits

We love to show off the new stock on our shelves! Our sales representatives would love to visit you and bring a selection of our books for you to select from for your library. We are based in Brisbane and Melbourne, however we do travel frequently to other Eastern Australian cities, so if you would like a visit, please contact us.

Author Events

What better way to encourage young writers than to have an author visit your school! We liaise with numerous authors and would be very happy to organise an author to visit your school. This is a fantastic way to encourage children to enjoy reading, as they love having a signed copy from the author!

Fundraising for your Library

It is so wonderful to see family members getting involved with children’s education. We can set up a display for family members to purchase books to donate to the school’s library. Donating to the school’s library is a wonderful way to support your school. If you would like us to arrange a display at your event, please contact us.
