Little Free Libraries
There are now five “Little Free Libraries” around Highams Park and a sixth at Oak Hill School. Set up by ARC members Bea Taylor and Thomas Hardy and painted by local artists they have proved to be a popular addition to the Street Scene, with books being borrowed and replaced on a regular basis. They were funded by a mixture of Ward Forum funding and book sales at the Farmer’s Market.
Visit a little free library to borrow a book for free! Please return it later or donate one of your own books instead.
