CENTRAL Tablelands Woodcraft has completed its first street library, handing it over to the Yetholme and Districts Progress Association on Friday morning.
The group has also completed a second, which is yet to find a home at the present moment.
Belinda Cobcroft, from the Yetholme and Districts Progress Association, said the group is thinking about installing the street library at the community hall in Yetholme.
“People we be able to take a book from a library and leave another behind,” she said.
Bathurst councillor Jess Jennings saw the rise of the street library movement during a visit to the US and thought the concept could also work in Bathurst.
Council was able to provide funds for materials for the street library, with the woodcraft group providing the time to build it.
“We’re still looking for a home for the second street library,” Cr Jennings said.
“It might go in Kelso, South Bathurst, West Bathurst. It’s more about a suitable and accessible location.”
The Central Tablelands Woodcraft meets three times a week, at the group’s headquarters at Dorman Place, Kelso.
The woodcraft group was founded 28 years ago back in 1990, currently having 80 registered members.
