Today we installed London's second Urban Fox Little Free Library in the heart of Clissold Park, Stoke Newington. The first foxy book sharing venue was installed in Walthamstow in May. The artistic design for both came from the wonderfully talented Hannah Adamaszek. Readers from Walthamstow will have seen her signature fox in a few other locations too including the brilliant Mural on the Marsh.
The Little Free Library can be found at Clissold House in the beautiful Clissold Park from today (17 July). As with all Little Free Libraries it works on a "take a book, return a book, donate a book" system designed to be self sustaining. "The park was a great choice for the LFL because it is a community hub for families" says Nick Cheshire (LFL Project Director).
There are lots of great places in Stoke Newington to pick up a book, including the fantastic public library on Church Street, as well as a number of used a new book shops in the area. Now there's one more place to find a good read and the best part of course, its completely free!
The Stokey Little Free Library is the second LFL to be installed in Hackney by our charity, the Little Free Library Project. The second 'Children's Themed' LFL can be found on Victoria Park Road (No. 191).
We're passionate about promoting access to free books and art and we hope the local community will enjoy having another place to pick up a book or two. Book donations are most welcome too!
