Still more – No 105

Ruby Baker is special. She sent me an email noting all the reasons why she would be a good guardian – “there are over 200 people (I counted) who walk passed my house each day”.Wow that’s impressive I thought. “I would take great care of it and make sure all the books are updated and interesting” The makings of a great Guardian there I mused.”I am also a good artist so the library would be covered in beautiful paintings and drawings.” Well what could I say except WELCOME TO RUBY’S LILLIPUT LIBRARY – our 105th Lilliput. It’s located at 11 Fifield St, Roslyn. Go take a look, find a book and admire Ruby’s Lilliput.

We’ve reached 100

Our 100th Lilliput Library is on site.

Guardians Marion and Lloyd Knight of Eden Street, Mosgiel have placed the Lilliput on their back fence bordering the Silver Stream bank. Access is via the Silver Stream Bank.

 

Lloyd is one of the marvellous blokes from the Taieri Blokes Shed who built 91 Lilliput Libraries for us. Sincere thanks to Sheryl McCammon who painted the very 1st Lilliput Library and now the 100th, as well as another 5 Lilliputs in between.
