The Outdoor Reading Room is based on the global ‘book crossing’ concept of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others. We hope this new program will bring the community together, celebrating their love of books and the outdoors
Through an initiative developed by the Friends of Wollongong Botanic Garden in partnership with Wollongong City Libraries, two new outdoor book cases have been installed within the Garden so book worms can enjoy a read during their visit.
You are welcome to borrow a book, keep a book or leave a book for others to enjoy.
We have an excellent range of fiction, non-fiction and children’s books for all to read but we would like everyone to consider bringing one of their pre-loved books to donate to this Outdoor Reading Room so this collection can continue grow.
Donated books can be placed in one of the Garden's two new outdoor book cases.
