Warrah’s Kevin and Zac, both avid readers, are Warrah’s proud librarians, and responsible for ensuring the library is well stocked and cleaned weekly.

Kevin is a resident in one of Warrah’s Supported Independent Living homes and Zac is a participant in one of Warrah’s day programs.

The Warrah Street Library is located next to the Warrah Farm Shop, and has ample parking for the community and neighbours to drop by to donate a book and also check out what books are up on offer.

“Programs like the Street Library and recycling initiatives give our participants opportunities to take ownership and experience greater autonomy. The projects help our participants to contribute in meaningful ways within the community and develop a sense of pride from their contribution,” Warrah CEO Delia Gray said.

Warrah Disability Services is a provider of services and support for adults and children living with disability and is inspired by the philosophy of Rudolf Steiner.
