Get the word on the street about the community book shares that are popping up across your neighbourhood
Whether you’re a fan of the latest bestellers, classic literature or biographies - you’re likely to find any one of your favourite reads for free in the ever-increasing street library network that can be found popping up around the community. These literature exchanges allow you to easily swap and share your used books with other local bookworms. Simply leave your preloved books in one of the community street library cabinets or bookcases and make a selection for yourself from the items someone else has left.
