Readings shops are closed until further notice
We are sad to announce that our shops are closed due to the ongoing public health crisis. We will reopen when things return to some sort of normal.
While health authorities permit we will continue to take and fulfil online orders.
Our booksellers will also be available to answer queries and take orders over the phone via our Carlton number, 03 9347 6633.
Readings Malvern is known for its personal customer service and thoughtful selection of books, music and DVDs. Classical music, fiction and kids’ books are particular areas of expertise.
Readings Malvern moved to its current site on Glenferrie Rd almost ten years ago. Its loyal customer base is mostly drawn from the local community, with many regular customers who have been shopping there ‘for years’.
In 2006, Readings Malvern won a Local Trader Award for Best Bookseller from the City of Stonnington.
Readings Malvern Story Time
Please note: Our story time sessions at all our shops are currently suspended. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and will update this page once they resume.
These weekly free sessions run every Thursday, from 10.30am to 11am, and are suitable for children aged 2-5 years. We ask that parents please stay with their children for the duration of the reading.
During trading hours, the front door is generally open and the shop is accessible for people whose mobility is impaired and wheelchair users. In rare cases, the front entrance may be closed due to bad weather. Clear signage can be found throughout the shop, and there is enough space for a wheelchair to be manoeuvred the length of the store. There are no steps within the shop.
There is a stool 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.
