Or better yet, drop into the store at 150 Queen Street, Masterton (but first check our opening hours here.)

We’re a family-owned bookstore that has been a fixture on Masterton’s main street since 1907. A lot has happened over our 113 year history. We’re busy writing it all down and hope to share our story with you soon.
