Community Book Exchange in Tweed!
Tweed City Shopping Centre has launched a Community Book Exchange, offering locals a place to swap books, give away books that are no longer needed and to seek inspiration for a new read and relax.
The pop-up library concept is based on a sense of community, where people are encouraged to take, share and donate preloved books of their own.
It’s free and there are no borrowing cards or late fees.
Tweed City Marketing Manager, Megan White says the initiative was created to bring the local community together, as well as help those in need.
“The Tweed City Community Book Exchange is a way of encouraging people to pause, have a conversation and build community networks. You can find a something for the adults and something for the kids too,” Megan says.
The mini oasis has taken up a space at Tweed City for a limited time, and is made for all ages to enjoy with books to be donated to Lifeline when the library space closes.
Lifeline is a national charity providing all Australian’s experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24 hour support. The books donated will go to those in need and also help spread a love of reading far and wide.
Customers are encouraged to sit and enjoy the quiet space, with cushions and couches, plus a kids tepee area on offer.
Customers can make a day of it and follow on with a meal at one of the casual dining options at The Cove, Tweed City’s casual dining precinct, or take in a movie in reclining comfort at Hoyts Cinema.
