How to support changemakers in your community

In Footsteps 37 you had an article on ‘building up your library’. The design shown could be improved by adding bricks under the bottom shelf in case water seeps in, so the bricks – not the books – would be damaged. I also recommend from experience, tilting the library at a slight angle towards the wall. Then if a child decides to climb it, the bookcase will fall inward rather than outward.
