2020 Street Library Winner

Street Library partnered with CBCA to offered a free Street Library to each Branch.

We are delighted to announce that Paynesville Primary School was the lucky recipient in Victoria.  Once they have constructed and decorated this wonderful gift, we will show you the result.

What is a Street Library you may ask?  It is a place to share books, to connect and inspire people – a tiny vestibule of literary happiness, which will surprise and delight the lives of those who stumble across them!  Congratulations !
