We want to encourage a lifelong love of reading and ensure that everyone has access to books in our community. This has been a team effort! Coordinator Anna Lee thought that having our very own free library at Greenhills Neighbourhood House would be great, then after discussions at a Greenhills Board of Management meeting, we decided to put another library out in the local park, a short walk from Greenhills Neighbourhood House. Volunteers at Reservoir Neighbourhood made our library and a volunteer at Greenhills Neighbourhood House painted the library a minty green colour! We are very proud of the library but also of what we can achieve when we work together in our community. We love Greenhills!
Our minty green little library sits happily in the park on Greenhill Road in Greensborough. Borrow a book and have a read in the park and then donate a book and share the joy of reading with others! We've seen the library have some treasures for kids such as Enid Blyton's Wishing Chair and for grownups who love a thriller, some Patricia Cornwall books - it's different every time! There are local shops and a cafe next door to the park, so grab a coffee and spend a quiet moment to indulge in reading in the park!
