Mindful Reads Haven

47 Hercules St, Chatswood 2067

Imagine some people who were feeling sad and needed help. They decided to create a special library on the street. It's like a small outdoor bookshelf filled with books that anyone can read. This library cheered them up, and we hope it also made the neighbourhood happy.

Meet CLS NS, a nonprofit organization on a mission to provide uplifting support for individuals dealing with serious mental health challenges. We are here to help those who have been diagnosed with severe mental health conditions or conditions that significantly affect their daily lives.

At CLS NS, we believe in the power of creativity and community. That’s why every Tuesday, we host an art group where our consumers come together to express themselves and find hope through art.

Our consumers were over the moon with excitement, and they poured their creativity into this unique project. With every brushstroke and colour choice, they expressed their journeys of recovery and resilience.

Finally, the day came when our vibrant street library was ready to be shared with the local community. We couldn’t contain our excitement! It was a symbol of the strength and beauty that can be found in every individual, no matter their challenges.

We can’t wait to see how this colourful street library brings joy, inspiration, and a sense of togetherness to our community. It’s not just a library; it’s a testament to the incredible power of art and unity in the face of adversity.”
