Located on bustling Ballarat Street and nestled amongst local coffee shops, restaurants and the Sun Theatre, The Sun Bookshop in Yarraville is a beautiful literary haven for locals to get lost for an afternoon.

The team at The Sun Bookshop combine a love of their local area with a passion for all things literature, with a focus on homegrown authors and talented writers from Melbourne’s west.

Zoe, one of the team, says she has worked in the store for five years now and she has enjoyed watching the area change.

“ It’s quite incredible how much Yarraville has evolved over the years, and we love that the bookshop has kept its soul during the transformation, we’re all really proud of it – we love how popular the shop still is!

“ We serve a lot of regular customers, we do have a very loyal customer base, everyone around here is very tight-knit,” she said.

The Sun Bookshop has close connections with other local business owners and many local schools, all of whom they see and meet regularly.

The Younger Sun bookshop, which became a standalone store in 2007, is located just 60 steps from The Sun Bookshop and focuses its offering on children’s literature, with many passionate and knowledgeable staff working closely with young people and schools.

“ The Younger Sun supplies books to several schools in the area, they are always making sure they have up-to-date books that are both diverse and inclusive – the kids love it and they love it!” Zoe said.
