Carnival Book Fairs has been operating since 2006, and we also have an online bookshop at and a Book Club

Our Book Club for preschools has been providing books for toddlers for many years, and a similar service for primary school aged children was launched in 2015. Our warehouse at Belrose, in Sydney, has one of the most comprehensive ranges of children's library resources in Australia.

Our strengths include our collective knowledge of librarians' needs and our decades-old relationships with local and international publishers and distributors.
