In 2014 we're creating a Reading Room in Hamilton House, Bristol - a sanctuary for rare, unusual and beautiful books based on the model of user-generated library Mellow Pages in Brooklyn (www.mellowpageslibrary.com). All books in the Reading Room will be donated by a network of members, and displayed to view and peruse in a small dedicated space in the creative warrens of Hamilton House. (www.hamiltonhouse.org)
In the next couple of months we need some help to transform the space - painting walls, acquiring furniture, fixing new lamps and lights, potting plants, hammering nails in walls and cataloguing books.
If you can help please get in touch. Time/Bank hours to be paid for each hour of work contributed to the project. And if you'd like to join the Reading Room or find out more, do write.
