Uiver Park Thorold Street Library
BEWARE OF THE AGAPANTHUS…
Now there is another reason to walk by Uiver Park playground. Look out for a green metal box sitting by the Agapanthus patch in the corner near the playground. ‘Beware of the Agapanthus’* by Alan Bowater is just one of the children’s books that will be read and re-read by the children looking for something special on their way to school or just playing in Uiver park.
Street Libraries increase the interaction between people. Dog owners and children playing make up a large proportion of visitors to Uiver Park. Uiver Street Library adds another reason to visit West Albury, have a play, take a walk, and leave/take a book when visiting Uiver Park where it provides space for dog owners who come to exercise, along with others with a ball to kick around. Authors for adults include Durrell, Picoult, and topics range from autobiographies to gardening, craft, recipes etc.… Bring one, take one….
