Kids are already enjoying books on health and wellbeing thanks to 2017 Rural Hero winner Pop Up Libraries

Pop Up Libraries have already been set up in Victoria’s north east, in the towns of Whitefield, Moyhu, Cheshunt, Mt Beauty and Mansfield while the central Victorian towns of Donald, Boort, Charlton, Wycheproof and Warracknabeal are currently enjoying their Pop Up Libraries, a project developed by the charity Reading out of Poverty.

Goulburn Valley towns Nagambie, Euroa, Nathalia, Tongala, and Stanhope have Pop Up Libraries on the horizon, and towns in Victoria’s south west will also get their own branch.

Each of these towns are without library branches, and it’s with the help of the dedicated team at Reading out of Poverty that they are receiving access to literature that could help nourish a love of reading in the children and wider community.

These Pop Up Libraries have been specifically designed to help Victorian children from small, rural communities discover the joy of reading. Each Pop Up Library is well stocked with an incredible range of books to suit children of all ages, with a focus on healthy eating, active lifestyles and generally promoting good health and wellbeing.
