Named after the book that inspired my interest in Street Libraries I am excited to give quality reading back to our neighbours and local residents. “Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body”
While walking with my daughter one Sunday we passed a Street Library on Alison Road Randwick. We stopped and I took a book – Michael Ondaatje’s “Warlight”. We walked home and I mentioned to my husband how much I loved the concept and how I wished for one of my own, on our front fence as the street we live on is near three schools and we get lots of walking traffic past.
A few weeks later, for Mother’s Day I received my very own Street Library and the first book to be placed in was “Warlight”.
