New lending library - for Co Armagh shopping centre

Abigail (9) helping Rushmere Shopping Centre launch their lending library

BOOKWORMS can borrow, lend or donate free titles at a new lending library - in a Co Armagh shopping centre.

A bookcart has been set up at Rushmere Shopping Centre in Craigavon in time for World Book Day today.

Lenders can exchange or borrow from a range of titles on the cart beside the customer service desk.

Centre Manager Martin Walsh said he was a "self-proclaimed bookworm with a special interest in non-fiction titles".

"We are looking forward to seeing shoppers enjoy the concept over the coming weeks and months and encourage them to donate their own titles as much as they wish."

We're compiling a list of unusual lending libraries and even lending shelves. Do you have one in your local café or parish centre? Please email us at
