Testimonials from our Volunteers

Street Library gave me a chance to play with power tools and share a laugh with different people

“I developed my love for nail guns while volunteering for Street Library Australia! Its a great way to learn some basic business and carpentry skills while having a laugh and a yarn with some like-minded people from all walks of life.”

Glad to be involved with the Street Library initiative. It feels great to help a community project that gets more people reading and encourages people to have fun in the process. I love how it not only promotes learning, but also brings people together and helps to build stronger communities.

“I come from a background of never really having built stuff or tried woodwork/carpentary. I got so much out of helping the Street Library mob build a couple of street libraries -I learnt new skills and will feel more confidence in making things like this in the future. Was also a great way to meet awsesom people who love the Street Library concept and want to contribute to seeing more of these in our towns and neighbourhoods’.

Helping out at Street Library over the past year has been a real page turning experience.  I have never been a big book reader but have gained a great appreciation for their importance in our society.  By contributing to the creation of these little boxes, filling them with books and putting them in public spaces I have been witness to the joy and commonality they bring out in others.  This has led me to not only give more time to helping grow the Street Library movement, but to also take more time out to enjoy the tales they hold inside.
