  • We wanted to say a big thank you for taking the time to source a range of diverse books for our school library and class book collections. The School Council recognised that we do not have enough books that reflect our community and are thrilled with the collection they now have. This is a starting point for us and we really look forward to working with you again in the future. We would highly recommend your services and will continue to support our new favourite local book shop!

  • It has been a pleasure working with Next Page Books. We needed to diversify the range of books that we offer in our school, they were extremely helpful and put together a list of recommendations for us. We created a wish list that we promoted in school and parents donated money towards the books via the Next Page website. We are looking forward to welcoming them to our school in the near future with their book fair.
