Volunteers from Glandore Community Centre’s woodwork group are building a ‘little library’ in memory of local resident Alan Dutton, who died in October last year.  

The library measures about 1m high x 60cm wide  and will be installed in front of the reception building so people can pick up a book and leave one of their own for others to collect at any time of the day or night.

It will feature a plaque honouring Alan, a passionate reader who keenly shared his books with family and friends.

The library is being built by volunteers Jack Chyer, Bill Jolley and Westley Tully in consultation with Alan’s daughter, Rebekah Brown, who came up with the idea after seeing a newspaper cutting about the increasingly popular little libraries her late father had placed on his fridge.

The little library will be open from October 1 at Glandore Community Centre, 25 Naldera Street, Glandore.
