A new self-serve library box located in front of the Revelstoke United Church is waiting for you to check in and check out books.

CBAL launches new street library on Mackenzie Ave

What's that new cedar shingle box in front of the United Church? A street library.

Contributed by Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy

CBAL is excited to let you know that a new ‘street library’ has been installed in front of the United Church at the corner of Mackenzie Avenue and Third Street. The library idea was brought to us from Mike Brown at from The Taco Club food truck.

The Taco Club had the library built and the United Church has graciously allowed it to be installed in a prominent location in front of the church.

As our part of the collaboration, CBAL will be stocking the library and ensuring there are books to borrow!

Community members are invited to:

—Take a book home and enjoy!

—Take a book and return it and take another!

—Take a book and keep it because you love it!

—Take a book and bring a different book to share with someone else!

If anyone would like to donate gently used books for the street library or any of our other book exchange locations, they can drop off at our office at Room 120-1001 Mackenzie Ave or call 250-805-2305.
