Little Free Library unveiling

This week we unveiled our Little Free Library at The Rising Sun Country Park. This project was developed and constructed with students from Longbenton High School Melrose department with support from SAINT and CAN DO volunteers.

Little Free Library is a community scheme where members of the public are encouraged to take and leave their favourite books. We think The Rising Sun Country Park is a great venue for the Little Free Library and we hope that visitors to the centre will enjoy borrowing and leaving books when at the park.

We had a fantastic time building the Little Free Library and the young people involved learned some valuable skills in construction, teamwork and joinery. Our volunteers also got a lot out of working with these young people to achieve their goal of installing the Little Free Library.

A big thanks to Heather and her team at The Rising Sun Country Park for installing it and to Bay Plastics for providing us a free cut to size Perspex window.
