Street Library made by the best male seniors in town!

Seniors at a popular western suburbs aged care home are sharing the joys of reading with their neighbourhood after setting up a new ‘street library’ by their front entrance at 116 Monash Ave, Nedlands.
A project spearheaded by the home’s ‘men’s business’ team, the seniors involved took time to paint, assemble and stock the new street library, which is already proving popular given its location close to local hospitals, cafes, schools, restaurants and public transport.
Regis Nedlands General Manager, Sam Waldron, said residents had wanted to set up the colourful new street library to encourage reading in the community, with its motto of: take a book, give a book, share a book.
“Our residents continue to have a very strong community spirit and the group involved in this project hope that locals of all ages will make use of our new free library,” he said.
“Street libraries provide a fabulous opportunity for people to discover a new book that they love, and everyone involved thought our little book exchange would be a fun addition to our neighbourhood.
“Locals have the opportunity to choose a new book to read and also deposit any books that they have at home gathering dust, so they can then be shared and enjoyed by many more readers.
“Already it’s proving a popular new attraction on our street and the seniors involved have really gained a sense of accomplishment by how popular the book exchange has become.”
Anyone passing the new library can simply reach in and take a book that interests them. They can then return the book to the street library or pass it on to friends.
