Free Book Library

We have been approached by a school PTA with a request to build an enclosure that could hold books to provide a free “library” service, where people could swap or borrow books. This would ideally be located in the grounds of the associated local primary school. The requirements are:

  • Should be enclosed (weatherproof);
  • Brightly coloured and / or decorated;
