Local children’s book author/illustrator Doriano kindly agreed to decorate the third ‘branch’ of the Kensington Street Library network. What a beautiful job he’s done! Thanks Dori.

Click here to learn more about Dori and his mate Steve’s beaut locally produced children’s books including The Camel on a Bicycle (English and Chinese language versions available).

We’ll let you know when the library is installed and ready for community book swapping. In the meantime, you can visit Kensington Street Libraries in the garden at Surreal Hair, 324 The Parade, and in the Borthwick Park shelter.
