If you have a passion for books, enjoy decorating and live locally, why not consider applying to adopt a little free library?

The City of Tea Tree Gully is looking for civically minded individuals and community groups to adopt one of three free little libraries, constructed by the Tea Tree Gully Men’s Shed.

Little free libraries are neighbourhood book exchanges that aim to encourage recycling and inspire a love of reading by providing free access to books. Successful applicants will be provided with a fully constructed and primed library to decorate in outdoor-appropriate materials.

In return, Council will provide books to stock the library in the first instance and will install it in an approved location in November 2018.

Once established, Council will register your little free library’s location on the Australia-wide street library network and the international Little Free Library network.

The Little Free Library Network is a non-profit USA-based organisation with the aim of increasing access to books for readers of all ages and backgrounds.

More than 60,000 little free libraries are registered with the Little Free Library network in over 80 countries worldwide. Little free libraries are publically accessible book exchanges that build community, spark creativity and inspire readers.
