The Street Libraries program allowed volunteers to position a small, secure box containing books that children can easily access and when finished reading, can return the book and swap it for another. The project aimed to improve literacy rates within the Latrobe Valley by ensuring all children have access to suitable books.
Six locations participated in the Street Libraries:
- Traralgon East Community Centre
To officially launch the Latrobe Valley Street Libraries, local children’s author Megan Higginson hosted a book reading outside of her own Street Library in Morwell in March 2018 that was well attended by local families.
