Another street library for Belconnen

December 12, 2019

Congratulations to Lil Street LibrariesBelconnen Community Council and the community at John Cleland Gardens for the launch of their new street library! 📚📖📙 

This was a particular collaboration driven by Florey local Rachael Thorpe and BCC committee member Bronwyn Vincent (below) which saw the BCC fund kit street libraries to be established in Belconnen suburbs which don't currently have one - other new libraries were established in Charnwood and McKellar late last month!

This library was painted by talented Year 12 student Utopia Kikkert and will be a fabulous community meeting point for the residents - and the suburb.

Belconnen is three suburbs away from having a street library in every suburb! Belconnen Town Centre, Holt and Strathnairn residents - if you'd like to host one, get in touch with the BCC!
