Build yourself a street library - April 2017
Sun, April 23, 2017, 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM AEST
Learn how to build a fantastic Street Library for your neighbourhood. The class covers basic tool use, assembly, and will include all materials needed to create your very own weatherproof housing for books and other treasures.
There'll be a special talk on Street Libraries by Nic Lowe, who's been a street librarian for ages. He'll give you hints and tips for making the best out of your street library.
At the end of the class, you'll have a fully assembled little box to put on your front fence. All you'll need to do is add your own flair, along with a paint scheme of your choice.
All materials are included in the price of the class, at cost.
We use recycled material provided by the Bower.
