A huge thank you to Dunedin Public Libraries for gifting Lilliput Libraries several boxes of their ‘after sale’ books. This donation has given us a huge boost and will ensure all the Lilliput Libraries will be well stocked on their opening day.

    Thanks Ruth for replying to my inquiry I am originally from Dunedin, I love this idea of free books in the community, We have free gardens all over the town, just help yourself, so free books would fit in well I love to read as do my daughters.
    So is it ok to just set it up, give it a different name Geraldine’s Mini Library or some thing like that, cheers Linda LMC
