"Take a book. Give a book. Share a book".

Books- they are a gift that keeps on giving. Especially in the case of Street Libraries. So why not pay it forward, by donating your unwanted books to a Street Library near you.

Street Library Australia is a fantastic organisation that promote literacy development, and community spirit through the sale of their 'Street Libraries'. Their mission is to have 5000 Street Libraries across Australia by December 2021.

Running every second Saturday, join Foodi on their interactive Chocolate Walking Tour, where you will discover some of these chocolatiers and gain insight into their craft.
When a family, business, or community purchase a Street Library, it will be registered, and marked on the map listing, here.

Once a Street Library is set up, the community are encouraged to donate their unwanted books (fiction or non fiction novels, for adults and children of all ages), and take some donated books home to read. They can either keep the books, or return to the Street Library for someone else to enjoy.
