The Street Library concept is a quiet literary revolution taking place across the globe. Many avid readers are joining this revolution making books available to anyone who passes by. People from all walks of life with a book or book collection they would like to share with others are welcome to join this reading revolution which is a much needed symbol of trust and hope in our modern world.
A Street Library is a miniature library in the form of an enclosed box, set up in a private street front. The Street Library owner fills the box with their books, and anyone passing by is welcome to borrow a book for free, swap a book, or maybe even donate a new one.
It is a great way to recycle books and especially for children and families to discover new books. The Street Library is also a great way to meet your neighbours and make new friends in the local community. Please check the Street Library website to find a miniature library of ideas near you.
