* A note on parking: Our landlord has requested that we ask everyone to please only use the store parking lot for attending events at Malvern Books and stores within the Park Plaza Shopping Center. Unfortunately, if you leave your car before or after an event (if you park out front with the intention of getting a meal across the road before attending an event here, for instance), there's a chance your car could be towed or booted, and we’d hate for that to happen! If parking is unavailable in the store parking lot, please use residential streets. Or, for evening events, you can park at Breed Hardware, 718 W. 29th Street, when they're closed (they close at 7pm Mon - Fri). And if you park in our lot, please watch out for potholes! *
* Accessibility: Malvern Books has a wheelchair ramp and is wheelchair accessible. We also have two accessible parking spots by the ramp and a single occupancy ADA standard restroom. If you have other accessibility needs or need other accommodations, please call us at 512-322-2097. *
