Friends! Readers! Lovers of literature and ornithology!
We are quite delighted to announce that we will be conducting a pop-up Recyclibrary event this Saturday 2nd November at the Grand Poobah (142 Liverpool Street, Hobart) from 11am.
We will be there hopping on the Emerging Writers Festival Roadshow bandwagon, and will be joined by a veritable plethora of friendly literary types from Twitch (the young upstarts of the Tasmanian Writers Centre), and the Stilts (a flock of literate types recently landed from Melbourne).
Please do join us from 11am for cake, scrabble, and of course, lots of luscious literature especially curated for the the young and the literate! We will be doing a special zine feature - do bring along any old zines you’ve tired of, or feel should be shared with the world at large.
There are also many other smashing events on the EWF program, which kicks off today - see the links below for further details.
Best bookish regards!
The Recyclibrary will be popping up at the Emerging Writers Festival Roadshow this Saturday from 11am at the Grand Poobah - looking forward to spending time with the some of the local Twitchers and migratory Stilts!
There’s a new selection of Island Magazine back issues at the Picnic Basket Recyclibrary in Taroona - woot!
Generous-hearted book lovers!
Thank you all so much for your overwhelmingly lovely donations to the Dunalley Primary School Library book appeal! In case you haven’t heard from Fullers Bookshop, between us all, we’ve now collected enough books to restock the library - hoorah!
If you still have books you’d like to donate, please, hold onto them for a little while - we will let you know when we’re ready to receive more shortly.
Best bookish regards,
Today, one of our finest Recyclibrarians, Ms. Paige Turner, hands in her bookseller’s apron at Fullers Hobart, to take up the red pen of co-editor at Island Magazine. We are so proud! Do drop into Fullers and wish her well in her new role!

The Recyclibrarians would like to express their great concern for all those, human or otherwise, affected by the terrible Tasmanian bushfires. Miss Wimple herself grew up in the Sorell Municipality, and is especially disheartened to see so many homes, farms and forests destroyed by these terrible flames.
We are still taking collections of books at Fullers in Hobart, and will be running a Recyclibrary out that way shortly. Children’s books are especially in demand - Fullers are organizing a drop off of books to the Dunalley Primary School, who lost everything in the fires - please dig deep through your book shelves for donations to this lovely initiative.
Book exchange at the Malanda visitors centre, in the Atherton Tablelands, Queensland - there’s even a Tablelands Book Trail!
We are set up at the Picnic Basket Cafe in Taroona - come down and say hello!
We are corralling the books, anticipating croissants. See you at the Picnic Basket Recyclibrary from 10.30!
Hello book and bread lovers,
It has come to our attention that the previous link we sent you to the Picnic Basket, site of tomorrow’s Mini-Recyclibrary launch, did not work. Sorry about that. Please try this one instead:
The Picnic Basket
Hope to see you tomorrow from 10.30am for a nice cup of tea!
Best bookish regards,
Friends! Patrons! Literary lovers of all things pastry!
We are delighted to announce the launch of our first mini-Recyclibrary, at the Picnic Basket in Taroona!
The Recyclibrary elves have been busy hammering, sanding, and nailing, and have installed a little bitty Recyclibrary in Kel and Simmo’s bakery on the corner of the Channel Highway and Jenkins Street, Taroona (just across the road from the Taroona Lounge Bar) - http://taroona.tas.au/bakery. You can visit this permanent teensy Recyclibrary for a quick book swap during regular bakery hours whenever you feel the need for a fresh literary infusion.
Do come along and join us for a nice cup of tea, perhaps bring a book to share, and watch us spilling croissant crumbs everywhere from 10.30am this Sunday 23rd September.
Book love and Lady Grey,
P.S. - For those of you who didn’t see on our website/facebook page/twitter feed -
We are (mildly) famous! The Recyclibrary features in the just-released Hobart edition of the Hide & Seek series, a compendium of the ephemeral and little-known pleasures of the town we call home. Have a look at our website for images of this lovely little pocket book - we believe PaigeTurner may have a stash of them at Fullers. Recyclibrary.tumblr.com
