Little Book Library

Introducing The Little Book Library

An exciting arrival has come to Montague Park, the home of the Birth Tree Project. 

When families gathered on March 4 for the 2017 unveiling of the Birth Tree they also celebrated the addition of The Little Book Library; a special occasion rung in by Steve Toms and Deputy Mayor Cr Lillian O’Connor.

Rotary Frankston Peninsula 2.0 worked closely with the council to create a design for the library. Construction was completed thanks to the help of the Mornington Men’s Shed and Bunnings, signage was kindly donated by Supersigns.

Montague Park is more than just a place for play – families and children can look at their names on the Birth Tree or in our Family Garden, and now they are also welcome to grab a book to read in the park or in the comfort of their homes. The library has a daily monitor.

The Frankston City Council has approved at 10 year landscaping plan for Montague Park in Frankston.  Each year, a specific garden bed (approx 8m in diameter) will be dedicated to babies born in that year.  This garden bed will include small shrubs and flowers, with the Birth Tree (Acer Negundo ‘Sensation’) in the centre.  To view the basic landscape plan, please click on the image below.
