Little Lending Libraries launch on the Connswater Community Greenway

You have probably noticed little 'huts' popping up in Orangefield and Victoria Parks? These are in fact the Little Lending Libaries where you can leave and borrow books from for free!!

You don't need to do anything to get involved just take a book and leave it back to one of the stands when you are finished! So, if you are into reading why not get involved in the #LittleLendingLibraries and pop by one of the libraries. We are depending on peoples honesty to make this work so please treat the libraries with respect. 

(Little Lending Libraries are now in Orangefield and Victoria Parks)

Why not join us for a series of workshops in the Parks to celebration the arrival of our Little Lending Libraries in Victoria and Orangefield Parks. You can get involved in a number of ways:
