Shed’s good turners

TWO ‘little libraries’ handcrafted by Bayswater Men’s Shed have been installed at Bert Wright Park and McGilvray Oval.

The cute libraries are free for anyone in the community who wants to take a book and swap it with one of their own.

Bayswater mayor Dan Bull said the little library concept was a great way to make books accessible in different parts of the city. “Anyone can stop by, take a book and leave another one in its place for someone else to enjoy,” he said.

“Little libraries are like a neighbourhood book exchange. If you enjoyed a book, why not pay it forward to someone who can get as much joy from it as you have?

“It’s a way to bring the community together and encourage conversation and excitement around reading.”
