Where’s the nearest library? Seven kilometres away. Now Oakura Avenue is a 24/7 Street Library where you can browse, take a book, leave a book.
I’m a librarian. Say no more. I fell in love with this idea a few years ago when I heard about the American model. But here we do it better – it’s free. I built mine at a workshop (or it would never have been done) and had a ball. Now, with a neighbour’s help, it’s up. So come one and all! This is a first for the Blue Mountains where many people love books.
