The Bookmart has a very comprehensive selection of quality books, magazines, CDs, DVDs and LP records. All books are presented in relevant sections covering a vast array of subjects including education, classics, cooking, travel, sport, art, history, and many, many more.

There is a very large selection of fiction, both in hardcover and paperback. The Bookmart is set up similar to a library and provides an ideal venue to discover that out of print or ‘hard to find’ book, or just to browse through the ever changing selection. There are more than 30,000 books on display at any one time.

Through the support of the community, the Bookmart is able to offer a vast and ever changing selection. Through the funds generated by the Bookmart, the Lions Club of Glenside has been able to support many community, charity, health related, youth and senior citizens groups.

Please note that all donations of books and magazines are gratefully received. For large donations please call our Bookmart manager Bob Wildy for details.

The Bookmart also acts as a retail outlet for the Lions Christmas Cakes and Puddings, available all year round. These famous products are always in strong demand and for your convenience can be purchased at the Bookmart during the below trading hours. Also available is the Entertainment Book from March to June each year.
