Call & Collect

Our Call & Collect service is back, but this time we’re doing things a little differently.


Starting Friday 4 June the Call & Collect service will be available during the following hours:

  • Carlton Mon to Sat 9am-6pm, Sunday 10am-6pm

  • Kids Mon to Sat 9am-6pm, Sunday 10am-6pm

  • Hawthorn Mon to Sat 9am-4pm, Sunday 10am-4pm

  • St Kilda Mon to Sun 10am-5pm

  • Doncaster Mon to Sun 10am-4pm

  • Malvern Mon to Sat 9am-4pm, Sunday 10am-4pm

  • State Library Our State Library shop will remain closed throughout lockdown, as it is subject to broader SLV restrictions.

As per lockdown restrictions it is available only to customers who live within a 10km radius.

For phone orders: We recommend browsing our website to plan your purchase first – take a look at our most recent reviews and blog posts, or browse the most recent edition of the Readings Monthly here. Once you’ve made your selection, call your local shop to place and pay for your order, and to arrange kerbside pick-up. During this period, we will be unable to accommodate special orders and Call & Collect will only be available for books that are currently in-stock at one of our shops.

For online orders: We are also offering in-store collection of orders placed onIine! At the end of the checkout process in the comments field, please state the store you will be collecting from. For orders placed via the website, there will be an additional wait time* of 1-2 days between placing your ordering and it being ready for collection. Your nominated store will call you when your items are ready to collect. *For this reason, if your order is urgent, please place your order over the phone.

Please note that any shipping costs will be removed when our web team process your order

We kindly ask that you do not approach our on-site shop staff for in-person or ‘through-the-door’ recommendations, as this is not permitted during Melbourne’s circuit breaker restrictions. We also ask for your patience with us if our phones or staff are busy, or if an item you wanted is no longer available. We look forward to seeing you back in-store on the other side!
