Our Mission

Street Library was created for two purposes:

1. To encourage literacy

“The more you read, the more things you will know… The more you learn, the more places you will go…”

Books have the power to transport people to a different world, experience the impossible, and unlock people’s potential.

The hope is that one day, a little boy with no books in his house can pass by a local Street Library and discover a new world of opportunities.

2. To encourage community

We at Street Library have the simple goal of bringing neighborhoods all over Australia closer together. We aim to build an Australian based movement that motivates people to engage with their community in a positive and easy way.

When people take a book and leave a book, they create a cycle of generosity that allows them to share what they love with those around them.

By participating in the Street Library movement, you too can help encourage reading, encourage sharing, and encourage community.
