Readings Carlton is a Melbourne icon, and has long been a gathering point for the Australian literary scene. It began life as a tiny stand-alone shop in 1969. The growing business moved to larger premises on 388 Lygon Street in 1982, making its final move to 309 Lygon Street, where it stands today, in 1998.

We pride ourselves on our knowledgeable staff and exceptional customer service. Experts in music, film, books and kids’ books are always available to answer your queries and handle special orders. Readings Carlton was awarded Independent Bookseller of the Year in 1998, 2001 and 2009.


Accessibility

During trading hours, the front door is always open and the shop is accessible for people whose mobility is impaired and wheelchair users. Clear signage can be found throughout the shop, but there are some areas where shelves and free-standing displays are spaced more closely together, which may make it difficult to move around comfortably. There is one step within in the shop which leads to the back section.

There is a bench seat located in-store, which provides a place for people to rest.

If you have any difficulties moving around the shop, encounter hard-to-reach titles, or require a pen and paper to communicate, staff members are always on hand to help.

If you have any specific questions regarding accessibility, please contact the shop directly.
