Quakers Hill Free Library for Kids and Adults

$434 of $409 goal

Raised by 31 people in 6 months
Hi Quakers! My names is Selina and I live very close to a bus stop and both Mary Immaculate Primary School and Barnier Drive PS. I would love to put a free library outside my house. Kids and adults can conveniently access books by simply walking past! 

As an English teacher, it saddens me that kids (and adults) don’t get to experience libraries for various reasons. It would be wonderful if people in our area could donate $2-$5 towards this literacy initiative!

The little shed library is $339 and the mounting post is $80. I'll try to pick it up at Erskineville to save the $450 delivery fee!
Details can be found here:   https://streetlibrary.org.au/

Fuelling imagination, creating an escape, expanding one's vocabulary and stress reduction through reading is priceless! 

Thank you! 

Selina

Hey guys! THANK YOU SO MUCH for your donations thus far! The donations exceeded the price of the small library so I'm going to purchase the larger one plus the stand. That way I can fit books for adults and kids. I will fund any remaining costs, the waterproofing and varnish to make it appealing. I am truly blown away by the support from my friends and the local community of Quakers Hill. I am also in the process of contacting our local member of parliament and have spoken to Blacktown library to hopefully gain a Local Government Grant to get 10 street libraries on behalf of Blacktown Council. Cross my fingers it goes through!

Much love,
Selina!
