The TARDIS has landed at Abbey School

Having travelled through all the worlds of literature collecting stories, the Little TARDIS Library has finally materialised and come to rest at Abbey School in Torquay. Filled with over 100 books for children of all ages, the TARDIS invites Abbey School's students to take, read and exchange books with their friends.

We stopped by Abbey School's daily assembly today to officially open the Little TARDIS Library. Children's book illustrator, Lauren Tobia, cut the ribbon and opened up the book exchange to the excited faces of Abbey's pupils. Lauren also read from one of her books and donated several signed copies.

We can't be sure how long the TARDIS will be here for before it vanishes on another adventure, but for now it appears to be here to stay. Happy reading Abbey School!

Royal Holloway University set to launch Little Free Libraries

Royal Holloway University boasts one of the most beautiful campuses in the world. Founder's Building welcomes visitors as they enter and tree lined paths connect academic and social spaces where students from all over the world come to study.

Founder's Building, Royal Holloway University
This month (January 2017) we delivered four Little Free Libraries, which were funded by the university. Two LFLs will be installed on campus and two donated to partners within the community, including a local school.

The LFLs will be artfully decorated by students and Alumni and then filled with books to be shared across campus. With students from all over the world studying at the university, there is sure to be an international mix of titles being exchanged, shared, and read amongst the leafy surroundings of Royal Holloway.

Happy Reading!
