LOCAL INFO // STREET LIBRARY
If you've kept your eyes peeled in our local community recently, you would have noticed a bunch of little boxes of books sprouting up throughout our suburbs.
These are Street Libraries, a simple mini-library designed to share your pre-loved books with your neighbours. No need to check books in and out, access is from the street, reach-in and take what interests you, when finished return to the Street Library network or pass onto family and friends.
GETTING INVOLVED: Visit a library, grab a book or add a book from one of the twelve libraries in the area. Read it, return it, or pass it on.
STREET LIBRARY GOALS: they pretty simple and something that Concord Pulse loves.
To encourage literacy by making books easily accessible
To encourage community, by sharing our books and stories with neighbours
STARTING A LIBRARY: This is easy, jump onto the Street Library website to get all the detail on building a library, design tips, registering your library and more.
