Benjamin Andrew Footpath Library

The Benjamin Andrew Footpath Library empowers homeless and disadvantaged people by delivering a regular supply of books. They survive through the generosity of corporate and public donations and can be contacted via

Sarah Garnett who has been running the service for a few years now, started with the gift of a book to a homeless man she knew. He spent the nights under a streetlight reading, as it was too unsafe for him to sleep. From that small start, she now has a weekly service, providing books free of charge to her visitors - they can take what they like, for as long as they want, and return -or keep - the books whenever they like.
