Whether you're into building things by hand or repurposing existing materials, you can create a little node for book sharing, conversation and informal gathering of neighbours.

Led by members of Greater Victoria Placemaking Network, and co-hosted by Building Resilient Neighbourhoods Resilient Streets program, and Fairfield Gonzales Community Association, this workshop will include: inspiring examples of pocket places, funding sources; finding and reusing materials; tools; communication and social media; creating a launch party; getting Little Free Libraries mapped; and more.
