Thank you to our Kindy classes for the new street library which was officially opened at our parade yesterday. The quaint red box is nestled in the trees on the Patonga Road side of the school. Street Libraries are a box of books that are accessible from the street, and are essentially an invitation to share the joy of reading. They are a window into the mind of the neighbourhood; books come and go; no-one needs to check them in or out. People can simply reach in and take what interests them; when they are done, they can return them to the Street Library network, or pass them on to friends.
If anyone has a book or two that they think others would enjoy, they can just pop it into any Street Library they happen to be walking past. They are a symbol of trust and hope – a tiny vestibule of literary happiness. A special thanks goes to Jade Pervan for this great initiative. We hope everyone will love being able to select books from the library and donate books for others to read and enjoy.
