Book lovers of Cairns have the chance to access an array of literature at the Mount Sheridan Plaza Book Exchange from Monday, March 26. The Book Exchange is launching in conjunction with Mission Australia and Communities for Children as a joint community initiative to offer readers the chance to find their favourite novels – for free.
The Book Exchange provides readers with the opportunity to swap books at no cost. Running on an “honesty policy” in that if you take a book, you are asked to replace it with another book. Love it, Read it, Return it!
Mount Sheridan Plaza Marketing Manager Kay Judd said “the idea of the book exchange provides an opportunity for people to share books that people may no longer want or love but no longer need”
“You bring a book that means something to you, that you would like to share with others. Then you take a book away that somebody else has brought,” Mrs Judd said. “It’s a give-one-take-one scenario.”
“We hope that the joy of literature and reading will be made more convenient with this new community initiative”, says Angela Liversage Centre Manager
Readers can embrace the TAKE, SWAP, DONATE by attending to the stand or alternatively drop them off at the Centre Management Office at Mount Sheridan Plaza between 9am-5pm weekdays.
Mrs Judd is delighted to have already received hundreds of book donations from patrons and people within the community and is searching for many more.
The Book Exchange is open every day and located near the western entry near Coles.
