Lilliput Libraries is the Poems in the Waiting Room (NZ) 2015/16 project.
They’re located on their Guardian’s fence lines and passers-by are welcome to “take a book now, leave a book later.”
The books are free for anyone to take away. You don’t have to become a member of Lilliput Libraries, you don’t need to return the books. But we encourage you to take a book now, return or donate one later. If you’re walking by and see a book that interests you, take it home. Next time you’re passing you may want to return it or pop another book in the Lilliput Library. We’re more than happy if you pass your Lilliput Library book on to someone else. It’s all about the love of reading.
As from March 2017 we are no longer providing Lilliput Libraries – our builders have made over 80 and they want a break. If you are interested in becoming a guardian I’m happy to talk to you about suitability and requirements and share our plan. You might like to create and build your own design or recycle a suitable container. If you want your Library to join our Lilliput family, let me know and I’ll give you a number, a box of books to get you started and add your location to our map.
I’ll continue to help provide books to top up Lilliputs, organise guardian gatherings and answer any questions.
