Little Free Libraries installed at the former Athletes’ Village



Residents of East Village are now able to access free reading material, with the arrival of Little Free Libraries in the neighbourhood.  Two miniature libraries have been installed at the former Athletes’ Village that provide residents of all ages with free access to a varied selection of books. The libraries have been designed by local artists, bringing a flavour of East London artistic talent to the area.

The chosen artists, illustrator Evelyn Rowland and jewellery designer Bianca Loh are both East London residents, and were selected for both their talent and passion for the area. The arrival of Little Free Libraries at East Village is part of an ongoing commitment to bring art and culture to the neighbourhood. The libraries are the latest in a series of artistic ventures following the installation of local art in the foyers of East Village residential buildings and a competition to win an art commission with a £70,000 budget.
