Books for Sale

These books are part of a magnificent donation from the late Peter Mann. The majority are in pristine condition and would make excellent presents for family and friends (or treats for yourself!). Peter collected works across many disciplines including the Arts, Philosophy, Science, History, Asian Studies and Theology.

How can I buy some of these?

In person using cash
Books can be purchased directly from library staff during business hours (Monday-Friday; 8:30am-4:30pm). To ensure that your visit is successful, please phone ahead to check that the library staff are available to assist and that there will be ready access to the books. There is an ATM nearby in the Milton Village shops on Baroona Road.

In person using electronic funds transfer
We do not have ready access to an EFTPOS machine and there will be a two-day delay for funds to be transferred. As such, the books cannot be released until we have been notified that the payment has been received. After that occurs, you can call back for your books, or these can be mailed to you for the cost of postage (we can let you know what this will be before you transfer your funds). Our account details are shown below. Please use your Family Name as a reference for your payment.

Ordering from a distance using electronic funds transfer
If you cannot select your books in person, please send a list of your desired titles to the email address below. We will check that these items are still available and, if so, we’ll put the books aside for you (although the Library Thing page is being updated as books are sold, we cannot vouch that it will be 100% accurate). As there will be a two-day delay for funds to be transferred, the books cannot be released until we have been notified that the payment has been received. You can collect your books after that occurs, or these can be mailed to you for the cost of postage (we can let you know what this will be before you transfer your funds).
