The Institute Library
The Institute got its own little public library, placed in the front garden of the Institute.
An activist family library in our front garden with some of the books we’ve read, catered for both adults and children. Come and visit, check the books, read and return.

This project has been made possible through inspirational Little Free Library movement in the US and local project ‘Small Libraries Big Stories‘ by Tuebrook Transnational who are creating a network of small libraries in Tuebrook. We’ve managed to persuade them to help us create one or two in Everton as well. Cheers to solidarity in North Liverpool! Small Libraries and performance events around them which took place on the 27th May 2013.
The List of Libraries in Tuebrook. Everton and Anfield.
Our contribution for the 27th May 2013 event included a short film, presented at the Everton Embassy in Tuebrook whilst we were away in Klagenfurt, Austria.
