Little free library

Yanchep is being welcomed into the worldwide `Little Free Library’ movement, with the opening of a special library that will bring big benefits for locals and visitors.

The library was built by Yanchep businessman David Bowen, who volunteered his time and materials to create the brightly coloured structure.

Yanchep’s Little Free Library will be open 24 hours a day outside the Yanchep Community Centre.

Little Free Libraries offer users free access to books on an honour system, without the need for a library borrower’s card.  Books are provided `in good faith’ in the hope that users will return a book for every one they take.

Everybody is welcome to attend the library’s official launch on Tuesday 21 July, 2015.

Local author Barbara Yates Rothwell will have the honour of cutting the ribbon at the launch and will be joined by fellow local authors Rachel Storer, Doug Paling and June Cornock.

The City of Wanneroo’s Literacy and Learning Specialist Angela Langford-Smith will speak about the Little Free Libraries concept, and how it will benefit the community. 

Visitors are kindly asked to bring a book to donate and swap at the library and will be warmed by a hearty winter soup, made by a local volunteer.
