Welcome to Westbooks, your local Western Australian library supplier. For over 40 years, we have been providing quality reading resources and shelf ready services to State and Public libraries, government institutions and schools.
We are Western Australia’s only full service library supplier and being local means we can provide you with the fastest service. You owe it to your readers to have your new release titles on your library’s shelves at the same time as they appear in local bookstores. We believe that no other library supplier can compete with our delivery times.
It is essential for your library to have an up to date and exciting collection of titles that reflects the interests of your readers and Westbooks will help you achieve this. We offer solutions for maintaining and improving your collections including selection advice, profiling and standing orders. Our specialists in both adult and children’s literature are happy to discuss your requirements, provide approvals and offer suggestions on upcoming titles. You are welcome to visit us or we will come to you. We can assist with foundation libraries, update and refresh your current collection as well as organise author events.
No matter how
your library is, we will provide a tailored, up to date range of titles to suit. Whether it is shelf-ready services, profiling, standing orders or a comprehensive review of your existing collection, we are committed to helping you.
Westbooks began as a children’s book supplier so we know all about books for children and young adults. With dedicated sales consultants, we offer a complete range of services for schools. Let us help your school select the right resources for your students.
We specialise in WA libraries and, being local, no other supplier can compete with our fast turnaround times. We supply new release titles at the same time as they appear in local book stores. Our consultants are available in WA business hours and can conveniently visit you on-site.
Not a school or a library? Not a problem! Our showroom in Burswood is open Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 5.00pm. Visit us at 119 Burswood Rd, Burswood WA 6100. We have a great range of fiction and non-fiction for children and young adults, and can special order a huge range of Australian and overseas titles.
