Why “The Shed”?

We call the “The Shed”, because the Mens Shed designed and organised to make them. Tony Varrell and his crack team of carpenters include (all over 80, mind you) Ross,George, Gordon (90), Theodore and Bruce. Thanks again lads.

Your purchase supports our mission to re-connect communities through literacy across Australia. We’ll also email you a guide to promoting your library with some tips and tricks for ensuring it is a success.

Finishing your library.

The library is not yet weatherproof and must be protected with at least two coats of paint or varnish to ensure it lives a long and generous life.
(Models shown may already be painted – your library is NOT painted)

We recommend securely fixing your library to your property ensure it does not topple and to hinder would be thieves and advantageous mischiefs.
