Rushmere Shopping Centre, known for its commitment to the local community and its unique shopping experience, has introduced a ‘Lending Library’ to its mall.

The concept will be a permanent fixture in the shopping centre throughout 2019 and invites shoppers to enjoy the gift of literature by borrowing and enjoying a free book from the bookcart, which will be located in the centre of the mall beside the Customer Service desk.

Avid bookworms can look on the concept as a community library where they can donate books for others to enjoy, exchange them one-for-one and borrow them to read at home too. Books can also be taken and read in one of Rushmere’s many coffee shops or relaxation areas across the mall. Centre Manager Martin Walsh said: “As a self-proclaimed bookworm with a special interest in non-fiction titles, I am especially excited by this. We are looking forward to seeing shoppers enjoy the concept and encourage them to donate their own titles as much as they wish.”
