About Us


Books and Beyond is your local destination for all your school and educational book needs. Located in St Ives, we cater to all ages, from Kindergarten to Year 12 and cover a wide range of subjects.

If you are looking for your school list books, we can help you. No need to wait months for a box of books, come in store and grab them yourselves. We carry school listed books for all the local Ku-Ring-Gai schools, including Ravenswood, Knox and Abbotsleigh, all the way to SHORE and Loreto. We are here to make the start of year rush simple and hassle free.

Not only can you shop everything on your school list, but we also carry a wide range of study guides, extra resource books, test papers and more. Need help writing essays? Need some extra practice questions for that Biology exam? Our friendly staff are always happy to recommend and advise you as you browse our large study guide selections.

And for the primary school years, we have a large range of books across subjects such as Mathematics, English (Writing, Comprehension, Spelling, Grammar and Handwriting), Geography, History and Science. Check out our selection of books to help boost NAPLAN scores, or prepare for selective school scholarship tests. Or, if you are simply looking for an extra book to help during the holidays, or provide additional resources alongside school homework, we have a whole range of curriculum-approved options to explore.

Find us on our website or visit us in store – we are always happy to help with any enquiry.
