Book boxes

Would you like to see free books at the end of your street?


Build a little library with Tim and Melissa, locals of Barking. Transform old wooden pallets into an outdoor bookshelf, that you can use to share books with friends and neighbours. The idea is that each time you take a book, you put one in that you’ve finished reading, creating a book exchange.


I’m Melissa, I’m a mum of two. I enjoy taking part in many local community activities to get to know my neighbours. 


My name is Tim. I got together with my neighbours to start projects in the area, to make it a nicer place for my kids and others. We started with play streets, and now we’re building book boxes..
