Westbooks was established in 1970 as a library supply company in Western Australia
and early on developed a retail side specialising in children’s books and educational toys.
A move into larger premises provided the space to host book launches,
book related activities for children and an annual seminar for teachers and librarians
which was a highlight of the children’s books literary year.
Since then Westbooks has been taken in new directions as well as maintaining the
original concept of engaging children with books and supporting the children’s book community.
Westbooks' owners are passionate about promoting Australian authors and illustrators.
Events such as 'A Night With Our Stars', run in conjuction with the Children's Book Council of WA, provide a platform for
WA authors and illustrators to showcase their latest publications.
