It is a book cubby, and it can be packed up and taken to schools or libraries in the Swan area.
The cubby has a desk inside, where children are encouraged to write and illustrate a small book about any conceivable topic.
Once the book is finished, one copy sits on the shelf and remains part of the nomadic library.
First stop for the cubby will be the Ellenbrook library where children in the regular reading workshops will have the chance to help paint the new book cubby.
While City of Swan librarians initiated the idea, it ended up as a community project.
The Men�s Shed built the cubby from materials donated by Masters in Ellenbrook. Call the library on 9297 9600.
