We first saw little libraries in public spaces in New Zealand. Our favourite was the Mussel Library, constructed from an old float hanging in a tree on a beach. Perfect location! We began to consider setting one up in our own area. Discovering the Street Library community was just the impetus we needed. Already we are enjoying seeing what books come and go and having lots of book centred conversations with people passing by.
A neighbourhood of keen readers so an ever changing selection of good reads and the high chance of a friendly chat as well.
