All set for a little bit of reading
THE Bayswater Men’s Shed has designed and built two little free libraries for book lovers in Bayswater and Noranda.
BOOK worms can borrow and swap books at two new little free libraries at parks in Noranda and Bayswater.
Bayswater Men’s Shed members designed and built miniature wooden libraries for the community to take a book and swap it.
The little libraries are at McGilvray Oval in Noranda and Bert Wright Park in Bayswater.
Bayswater councillor Filomena Piffaretti said little free libraries were popping up in neighbourhoods all over the world and she was excited to have two in the City.
“Providing access to books in unexpected places, little free libraries are a way to inspire a love of reading in children beyond the classroom,” she said.
“Once your child has finished with a book, why not encourage them to pop it in a Little Free Library for another child to enjoy? It’s a great little lesson in sharing.”
Mayor Dan Bull said the initiative was a way to bring the community together and encourage conversation and excitement about reading.
