Forbes' second street library has launched!

A new street library has arrived at Lions Park, it can be found in the shelter there.

A street library is just as it sounds: it's something of a community bookshelf.

There's no need to check books in or out, you can just grab something that takes your interest and return it when you're done.

If you've got books you're finished with, you can help get the street libraries going - or keep them fresh - by donating your used books to our local street libraries.

Another Street Library can be found in Nelson Park, it was built by Forbes Men's Shed and installed by Forbes Shire Council after a proposal came forward from local resident Kathy Prow.

We love it!

Kathy Prow encourages people to pick up a book, and drop off another, at the new street library in Nelson Park.
