Rodley to celebrate its new Little Free Library

23 October 2018

Rodley residents can book a date for the official launch of the new Rodley Little Free Library.

The mini library, which has been championed by community group Light Up Rodley, is the latest in a network of a growing network of honesty box book exchanges springing up across Leeds.

The library, on the wharf by the canal just past the Barge Pub, will officially open at a community celebration on Monday 29 October, 1.30pm to 3pm.

There will be a children’s activity table and lots of books to take and Light Up Rodley will be taking book donations. There will be cold drinks for children, hot drinks for adults, biscuits and fruit.

Children are welcome to come along dressed as their favourite book character.

The opening comes just a month after a Little Free Library was unveiled on the Westdale estate in Pudsey. They can also be found in West Leeds at Landseer Grove in Bramley and The Newlands in Farsley.

In an era of funding cuts to public facilities, Leeds Little Free Libraries encourage users to take or leave a book from their mini community libraries, making reading accessible to all.

Little Free libraries promote kindness, sharing, civic pride, recycling and reusing, are a good talking point, and are a social media check in and meeting place.
