Graeme with some of the boxes he has built to be used by Mudgee Street Library.
The Street Library is an Australian movement that encourages literacy and community spirit by placing these, and similar, boxes in front yards and filling them with donated books, that people can borrow and replace. The Street Library motto is –
“Take a Book, Give a Book, Share a Book”
Graeme built these book boxes from surplus timbers, mostly old fence pailings that he cleaned up by putting them through our thicknesser, and they came up really well.
The boxes proved so popular that he has an order for up to 10 more, unfortunately the old fence timbers have all gone, so it will be interesting to see his new designs.
Well done Graeme.
