Neighbourhood Library

Neighbourhood Library Initiative

Taking inspiration from an initiative started in the USA: ‘The Little Free Library‘. We would like to challenge residents of Oakwood to create small libraries on their own land and build a network of neighbourhood libraries. Please gain landowners permission if you don’t own the property.

If you want to make it an official ‘Little Free Library’, you will need to register it with the site as the name is trademarked (see website and article below).

Here’s some guidance for creating your own community library from an article in the Guardian:

There’s plenty of advice on how to build your own library on the site linked at the head of this article.
