MURDOCH University’s Perth campus has joined an initiative promoting the discovery and sharing of books.

Little Free Library boxes have been installed at Bush Court and near the Chiropractic Clinic on Discovery Way for the local community to exchange books free of charge.

The mini libraries were built by Murdoch staff member Steve Shaw from recycled wood gathered at verge collections and were painted by Murdoch School of Arts alumnus Ali Salah and student Brent Minehan.

The Little Free Library boxes movement began in the US in 2009.

There is currently more than 60,000 registered Little Free Libraries around the world.
