Chestnut Villa - Lilliput Library

Hope and Sons Ltd —

We are excited to be installing a Lilliput Library out at Hope and Sons Mosgiel - Chestnut Villa, 41 Gordon Road, Mosgiel.

Funeral Director, Lisa Breen's latest project is installing a Lilliput Library at our Chestnut Villa Funeral Home. Lisa has been working towards setting this up for the last couple of months. 

The Taieri Blokes' Shed have already built our Lilliput and the students at Taieri College have started painting the artwork for us!

Our Library will be installed in the very near future. We are excited to see the end product and to have something that the whole community can enjoy. 

Lilliput Libraries operate on a trust and exchange system. People donate books and a local "guardian" volunteers to have the library on their fence line, keep an eye on it and ensure it is full. Any member of the public is welcome to take - and keep - a book, although Ms Arnison encouraged people to give back to the libraries when they could. 
Hope and Sons are contemporary yet respectful of tradition, being a five generation funeral family caring for the Dunedin, Mosgiel, and Otago communities.
