OUTDOOR READING ROOM
The Outdoor Reading Room on Parklawn Place North St Marys has had its second last Corporate Volunteer Blitz day from United Way Australia with a 40+ team from ING Direct. A second coat of paint was put onto the mural wall, a noticeboard to promote community events installed, bench seats for people to sit and read books from the Little Free Community Library, wicker style planter boxes complete with beautiful herbs and lavender, a passionate fruit vine and trellis, as well as a first coat of the outdoor movie screen.
Over the coming months United Way will hand this project over to our community to continue to grow and develop the site. Many thanks to partners involved in their own way in bringing this project to fruition - United Way Australia, Shared reading NSW, Paint Penrith REaD and Magnetic Places Penrith City Council.
The Outdoor Reading Room is evolving into a wonderful welcoming community space.
