Lilliput Libraries 206 – 216

While out walking yesterday we came upon this Lilliput Library at Tainui School. I emailed the school to see if they wanted to join our family and here’s the amazing response from Dave, a class teacher. “As an optional homework activity we asked willing students to design (on paper) their idea for a Lilliput Library. To my surprise, a student in my class came to school one day with the finished product. It came complete with a step by step report and photos documenting the construction, and instructions on how our community should use it.” Please welcome LL 216 .

Please welcome Tommy’s ‘Just for Kids’ Lilliput Library at 60 Scroggs Hill Rd. It’s our 215th Lilliput Library.

Lilliput Library 214 is on site. Go check it out at 47 Table Hill Rd, Milton. Leanne & Ross Burgess are the Guardians of this very cute Lilliput. 

LL213 is on site at East Taieri Preschool -13 Cemetery Road, East Taieri, Mosgiel. One of their amazing parents painted this Lilliput.

LL212 is at 27 Corbett St, Enoggera, Queensland, Australia. We’ve sent our plans to a large number of Australians but they’ve all wanted to give their own name to their Libraries. Jac Gallagher is our first Australian Guardian who wanted to belong to Lilliput Libraries

Please welcome Lilliput Library 211 located at 217 Ferry Rd, Christchurch, but actually round the corner on Nursery Rd. 
Migs says:
The Quaker Meeting House moved to Ferry Rd (close to central city) after the Christchurch earthquakes. Our Lilliput Library had to wait until more urgent things got done. Listeners and other magazines are proving very popular, as well as the books. The front is plastic with magnets, which works well.

Please welcome LL210 – now on site at 17 Aubrey Rd, Pataua North, Parau Bay. This is the 8th LL in Whangarei. It looks fantastic.

If you’re in Milton take a wander to 63 Chaucer St and check out the newest LL, it’s number 209 and is looking fabulous.

LL208 is in Shoebridge Cres Ngunguru Whangarei and LL207 is in Otuhi Rd, Wheki Valley Whangarei.

LL 90 and 100

When guardians leave Dunedin and the new owners don’t want the LL we offer the LL to an eager family and release the number to the next LL which comes along.


6SO when LL 100 Guardians Marian and Lloyd Knight told me they had added to their family I reassigned the number 90 to them for their special Children’s LL. Both LL’s sit on Marian and Lloyd’s fenceline, on either side of their gate out onto the footpath along the banks of the Silverstream in Mosgiel.
