Encouraging reading, writing and the love of literature.
At Under the Silver Tree Cooperative Bookshop, we sell a broad range of quality second-hand books as well as new books by local authors. We also specialise in books on local and regional topics. As part of our mission statement we also work to nurture a love of reading and writing throughout the far west of New South Wales.

Founded in 2016 as a non-disbursement not-for-profit cooperative to provide Broken Hill and the region with a bookshop, Under the Silver Tree Cooperative Bookshop works to provide our region with opportunities to engage in reading and writing through, among other things, our donation program and writing competitions.
We have expanded our display of Broken Hill books, to better showcase our fantastic range of books about Broken Hill and books by local authors.
