Kids Street Library at Winmalee
The first of the Kids Street Libraries was recently installed at Rainbow Preschool, 53 Singles Road, Winmalee.
An auspicious date for the Centre which was celebrating 25 years of operation. The owner Joan Murray has always been passionate about kids, books and reading with books, not technology, “You can’t cuddle technology like you can a child and a story book” says Joan.
The book supply for the Kids Libraries to cover all ages up to 12 years have been lovingly packed by Blue Mountains Library staff.
Peter Pugeja, John Crichton and Andrew Jamieson from the Central Blue Mountains shed installed the Library (fist image below) and Sherlie Lewis and Karen Stevenson from the Women's Shed completed the last of the installation (middle image below).
The artwork, designed by children Neva from Wentworth Falls and Elijah from Blackheath, was painted by Karen, Rachel and Maude from the Women’s Shed (last image below).
Finally Iszaack and Jermiah who found this location for us was there to help us celebrate. The brothers selected the Preschool from good personal experience.
I don't go to Rainbow Preschool any more but I think it would be the perfect place for a street library because preschool kids and their big brothers like me could easily use it every time we went to the preschool for a drop off or pickup. Mums and Dads would like it too and Mrs Murray would be excellent at looking after it. She loves books. Also lots of people drive along Singles Ridge Road and they could stop by too they said.
