A train journey can be a good time to relax and find time to immerse oneself in a book. Reading can really help destress your mind to and from work and more.
We are working in partnership with Merseyrail and have set up 6 book exchanges based in stations on the Wirral Line and are now looking for new stations.
People, not just rail users, will be able to take books from these exchanges and then, when they have finished, put them back.
Only second hand books are used to impress upon people that books can be reused time and time again for everyone’s enjoyment.
We are looking for local groups, such as schools, scout and guide groups and others to help us run these exchanges and to help donate books and book cases for the stations. Please get in touch if you would like to help.
We are grateful for Ikea Warrington for donating 5 book cases and Transition Towns West Kirby for building a case made from reclaimed wood.
Learn more about our book exchanges on Bay TV.
