My daughter and I + a friend decided to check out a Street Library in the neighbourhood one day. From the moment we laid our eyes on that first one we were completely obsessed. So we made it our mission to visit all the Street Libraries in Canberra and Queanbeyan. Follow our journey, Street Library Tours on Facebook. Just search for Lil Street Libraries.
Then of course I had to have one of my own. I started with a hot pink locker for the book box. Adult books up top and kids below. Over time my preschooler and I turned our little street library into a magical Alice in Wonderland themed space complete with a colourful mural and a grass sofa. I recently hosted Halloween crafts here for the kids in the neighbourhood. When life is not so busy I hope to be able have more kids events like story time and crafts.
My favourite thing about having a Lil Street Library – the excited little visitors.
