Mitcham Supports Mostly Books
Mitcham bookseller Mostly Books has become the local supplier for the Mitcham Memorial and Blackwood libraries.
The business, based at Mitcham Square, is Adelaide’s oldest independent bookstore and runs book clubs, writing groups, knitting groups and regular events with authors.
City of Mitcham Mayor Dr Heather Holmes Ross said Council sets aside part of its library budget to support local businesses to stimulate the economy and protect local jobs.
“Mostly Books has been a fixture in Mitcham since 1977 and we are proud to support this vibrant local business.”
Mostly Books Manager Annie Waters said Mitcham’s support was a welcome boost for the business which had been affected by a downturn in trade during COVID-19 shutdown.
“We have been incredibly heartened by community support during this time, in particular from our local libraries. Mostly Books is grateful for the immediate and significant response from the City of Mitcham and we look forward to supplying them with books well into the future.”
Mostly Books is providing a large proportion of Mitcham’s stock, taking over from long-time supplier, Booked at North Adelaide which closed down earlier in the year.
Mostly Books is at Shop 12 & 17 Mitcham Square, 119 Belair Rd, Torrens Park.
