Why is it the LIFT Library?
Because Living Economies and Project Lyttelton hope it will provide Inspiration plus Facts to enable Transition to a community and lifestyle determined and developed and supported by the people for the people!
LIFT library is a diverse collection of resources to inform and empower change covering topics from the money system to organic gardening and health.
It was started by volunteer Juliet Adams (pictured) after a conversation at a time bank hui held in Lyttelton after the earthquakes.
A passionate advocate for the planet, Juliet set up the library in her home to promote new ideas during the rebuild. The collection has grown and now is housed at the Lyttelton Recreation Centre.
Juliet is incredibly knowledgeable about the collection and welcomes the chance to chat to anyone wanting to learn more about what we can do about the global challenges we face together. Juliet also runs regular film nights for koha followed by chat time and a cup of tea.
“The films look at how we can manage our lives for the health of ourselves, our communities and the planet," Juliet said.
Email Juliet to sign up to the LIFT newsletter and get updates on film nights, new items and reviews.
The LIFT Library is located at 25 Winchester Street, Lyttelton
Open Monday to Friday 10am - 4pm and Sat 10am-1pm.
Juliet is on the front desk Tuesday afternoons and Friday and Saturday mornings.
The LIFT Library is supported by Chantal Jousserand-Shirley, who is a Project Lyttelton Board member.
