Community Interaction has been integral to Books of Buderim’s philosphy.

Our wonderful Classic’s book club has been running for 2 years, and has brought the community of Books of Buderim together on a monthly basis for varied discussion and following on with coffee and a chat at one of the local coffee shops. For some of our club members, this is the first people they have made friends with in Buderim. Kay Nixon, one of my treasured staff members always made everyone feel welcome and provided a place to offer their valued opinions.

Shark Bug Gary has been a regular feature in the courtyard. Gary is a well-known celebrity in Buderim with his lay down bicycle and friendly nature. Gary spends his time at the Bookshop making the most interesting art pieces that can be purchased as cards.

We also support local causes such as Gardens of Buderim Festival, Readers Cup, Reading Hour, Voices on the Coast, Imagineers and School and Kindy fundraising raffles. Theatre has been enjoyed amongst our bookshelves. We have had students of Bytes presenting Speech and Drama pieces to friends and family,  and we have been very lucky to be able to offer our location to the Anywhere Theatre festival to stage “The Likely Story” play amongst our bookshelves. Our customers may remember the book arch that has adorned our entrance for the last six months. It was recently relocated to Palmwoods Gardens but will never be forgotten. This was part of the wonderful world of books that was created by the Sunshine Coast Theatre Company.
