Street Libraries have been popping up across the country in recent years with increasing regularity.

One such local Street Library has been launched by News Of The Area reporter Jen Hetherington in Fishermans Reach.

Meg, from Street Libraries Australia announced, “A round of applause for Jen in Fishermans Reach, NSW, who took it upon herself earlier this year to set up her own Street Library, ‘Reach For Reading’.

“Jen has now registered her Street Library for the inaugural National Shared Reading Week and will be reading a little something for her community at 10.30am on Sunday December 3.”

Jen, an author and poet herself, believes that “sharing and reading are strengths we can all build in our community”.

“Our little hamlet is blessed with a wonderful diversity of interesting folk.

“Their stories and the habits of our reading, writing and sharing practices embrace and connect our values.”
