Fairytale library in Vincent

HAROLD STREET residents have got together for an adorable little project to brighten up their street, installing a micro-library where people can borrow books and trade seeds.

Local Katrina Montaut said she heard about Transition Town Vincent holding a workshop and went along to help paint the teeny bibliotheque for her street, emblazoning it with poppies and calling it “Poppy on Harold”.

Locals have stacked it with books for neighbours to borrow and seeds to encourage people to plant them and bring colour to the street.

They’ve already had a fair few people borrowing books or seeds and they’ve added free fruit, giving away extra lemons and pomelos from overladen trees, and people have been writing cute notes of thanks in their little guestbook.
