About the Shop
The Book Bird is a small, independent bookshop that prides itself on matching readers with books they love. We believe bookshops are repositories of wisdom and spaces of learning. Our little shop, located on Pakington Street in Geelong West, has become a much-loved community hub since opening in 2015. This idea underpins everything we do, across customer service, events, our book club and other initiatives.
Our eclectic range of books spans children’s, young adult, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, gardening, travel, art, architecture and cooking. We stock the books you see reviewed in the national papers and the books you’ve never heard of, but, when placed in your hands, just may change your life. No, seriously, this has been known to happen.
We like to think of our staff as your literary tour guides. They are knowledgeable and passionate about what they do and will take the time to connect the right books with the right humans. Whether its in-store recommendations, our review cards, carefully considered displays or social media posts, all our communication at The Book Bird is about sharing the power of books and reading.
