The first person who turns up, on Monday May 1, with a book to swap at the Governors Cafe Lilliput Library will receive a free coffee.  Thanks Heidi and Ronnie.

64 Rebecca Shaw is the guardian of Lilliput Library no 92. It’s located at 64 Harwood St, Harwood. I love the story of how this Lilliput came about. Rebecca emailed ” I was thrilled to see the library in Harwood a while ago. I visited Karen and Kevin to congratulate/thank them and Kevin suggested I get one so the ensuing discussion resulted in Kevin building me one! The next step, is painting it.” So a wonderful collaborative Lilliput. Thanks to Kevin Hutt for constructing this gorgeous Lilliput and to Rebecca and her daughter for the artwork. Two Lilliputs in Harwood – brilliant!
