We thank all our customers for their support during the two lockdowns. Your support kept us going. We know you spent money to keep many small busineses open because, like us, you know that a strong queer community and a small business economy is never something we can take for granted.

A symbol of the resilience of Hares & Hyenas and the queer community was the home delivery service, BOOKS BY BIKE. It was founded before the first lockdown and sustained deliveries in all four directions for the duration. The actions of our volunteer couriers saw our customers collectively save thousands of dollars. And as you would expect of generous community-minded people, most of our couriers are returning to busy lives and will not have the time to commit to a full program of deliveries. This means that we will be winding the program back and announcing where and under what terms the service continues. In the short term it will cover all easy to reach destinations in Melbourne's CBD and some areas in the northern corridor and inner city. Stay tuned for more details as they come to hand. 

Our expanded eNews bulletin continues to provide up-to-date information on books and literary cuture, with links and resources for the queer community. Click here to subscribe
