 Little Street Libraries

Little Street Libraries aim to promote literacy, build a sense of community and endorse reading. Various little free libraries are being installed in places such as parks, residential properties near schools and child care centres within the City of Belmont. The ‘little library’ is a simple book swap concept; they are filled with books so that anyone can stop by and collect a book or two, provided they replace the ones that they take with other books.

The City of Belmont supports the installation of little free libraries as they encourage an interest in reading by making books more accessible in different locations in the community.

The following guidelines aim to clarify the scenarios for little libraries situated on private land and those on public land.
