Strathfield Council joins the Street Library Revolution!

Are you a book lover? 

Street libraries are a trend in Australia that much of the community has taken up and are benefiting from. Be an active member of the community and assist those in your neighbourhood! Residents of all ages and backgrounds benefit as Street Libraries create common interests, stopping points, opportunities for social interaction and sharing of knowledge.

Residents will be able to enjoy free reading material right at their door step and engage in meaningful conversations about their stories with one another.
