THE Town of Vic­to­ria Park is aim­ing to smash typ­i­cal li­brary stereotypes with the in­tro­duc­tion of some ‘out of the box’ ini­tia­tives for res­i­dents.

Deckchair loans, chil­dren’s out­side play ac­tiv­i­ties and a visit­ing pop-up toy li­brary are all mak­ing the out­side of the Vic­to­ria Park li­brary an ad­di­tional place peo­ple can en­joy dur­ing the sum­mer months.

On Fe­bru­ary 23 from 10am11am, the Carlisle/Vic­to­ria Park Toy Li­brary will bring a pop-up toy li­brary to the out­side of the Vic­to­ria Park li­brary, al­low­ing mem­bers to bor­row and play with larger toys on these days.

Mayor Trevor Vaughan said the ad­di­tion of non-tra­di­tional li­brary items was a great ini­tia­tive.

“The idea is that peo­ple have the opportunity to grab a book from the li­brary, bor­row a deck chair and sit un­der the shade of a tree, or out in the sun­shine and en­joy some time out,” he said.

“You’ve also got the op­tion of work­ing out­side in com­fort on your lap­top or por­ta­ble de­vice us­ing the li­brary’s free Wi-Fi.”
