The Mill Park Library opened in 2002 at a cost of $8 million, and was the first library in Victoria to be designed on the concept of a hybrid digital/print library. It serves the northern outer suburbs. This iconic library building on Plenty Road has a spacious children’s library, a fully equipped training room with 12 PCs, an extensive Local History collection and a quiet reading area. As well as material in English, the library offers community language material in Italian, Greek, Maltese and Chinese.
When we visited the library today we saw it had had its columns "yarn-bombed". I must say that the colourful patterns certainly spruced up the rather dull grey of the concrete and lent a festive air tot he building, perfect for the Christmas holidays!

found this most interesting in conjunction with 2, 2015 reading challenges, in support of local libraries.
Hearing about yours is inspirational...
These harm bombings look great on this building. Nice closeup photos, too.ReplyDelete
We had one in a local park, on the trees. I liked the trees better without the yarn. I heard complaints that the yarn could have been better used making blankets or scarves for the homeless or other needy people.
Excuse my computer's spelling corrections. I'm a bad typist and of course, I meant to say Yarn Bombing ---I certainly hope no HARM was done.ReplyDelete
Very interesting! I love all those bright colors!ReplyDelete
