Where To Buy Malaysian School Text Books And Workbooks

This is a frequently asked question on our group the Malaysia Primary School Parents on Facebook.

That is why we are writing this list for easy reference by parents. School text books are given out on loan to all students under the Skim Pinjaman Buku Teks (SPBT). Why do parents still buy textbooks when they loaned to students? You can read our previous post on this topic.

Here are the list of places both online and at physical stores where you can buy school textbooks. Some bookstores may carry more SK or SMK books then SJKC or SJKT so it is advisable to call up to check before visiting the stores. This list is not exhaustive. They are mostly recommended places by our members. If you would like to recommend a store, just drop us a comment on this post. Feel free to recommend bookstores outside of the Klang Valley too.
