Library under construction at a recent Street Library maker day;

Reading is freedom

STREET Libraries are a beautiful home for books planted in your front yard. Accessible from the street, they are an invitation to share the joys of reading with your neighbours. If anyone has a book or two that they think others would enjoy, they just pop it into any Street Library they happen to be passing.

Thank you to everyone.

As a regular reader of the Burwood Bulletin I am really impressed with the articles on history. I very much enjoyed the pieces about the former picture theatre in Ashburton and the Historical Radio Society of Australia.
