Rapid response returns Little Library to service …

Overnight on Monday, 3rd June, the Rotary Club of Boronia Little Library located at Schokolade Café in the Studfield Shopping Strip (191‑249 Stud Road, Wantirna South) was substantially vandalised and books destroyed.  CCTV footage shows a group of adolescents inflicting the damage.  This incident follows previous ones in which the library was knocked over and partially damaged in February, and again in April, this year.

To ensure minimal disruption to the beloved community service provided by the Library, Club member, Lance Deveson (Little Library Project Coordinator) and past member/Friend of the Club, Chris Karajas moved swiftly into action.  Using components already in hand, Lance and Chris assembled a new library, which was put into place two days later (Wednesday, 5th June).

Consistent with all the Club’s little libraries, the new library will be repainted by local school students as soon as the opportunity arises.

Due to the efforts of Lance and Chris, members of the Studfield/Wantirna South community can continue to:

TAKE a Book, GIVE a Book, SHARE a Book.
