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 exceptional 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.


Sales Representative Visits

We love to show off the new stock on our shelves! Our sales representatives would love to visit you and bring our vast range of 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 and we can arrange a mutually suitable time.

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!

End of Year Prizes

What better way to share our love of books than to support schools which award books to exceptional young people in our community. If you need a selection of books for children to choose from for prizes, our staff can help choose some books on subjects you specify and send them to you.

Special Orders

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

Grandparent’s and Extended Family’s Day at School

It is so wonderful to see family members getting involved with children’s education. At Grandparent’s and Extended Family’s Days we can set up a stall for family members to purchase books for their children or 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 let us know.
