Taking 'Beach Read' to the next level

How cool is this! Coogee Beach has added a sand library for summer so sun-seeking punters can improve their knowledge, vocab or uncover conversation starters to chat each other up with.

There's more than 1000 novels, non-fiction, magazines, international language and children's books on offer and no library card is required. Just front up in your cozzie!

“Modern libraries are thriving educational and social centres and the beach library will bring our resources to even more members of our community,” says Randwick Mayor Ted Seng. 

“Imagine if the Coogee Beach Library is able to encourage even just one child to pick up a book and discover the joy of reading, then this project will be well worth it.”

The Coogee Beach Library will be open during lifeguard patrol hours of 7am to 7pm and will be at Coogee Beach until end of February 2015.
