WHAT IF there wasn’t just one library with thousands of books but thousands of libraries with just a few books that you could lend?
WHAT IF you had a library at home and you could play librarian yourself? A little like a Little Free Library but with the difference that the book you lent out would be returned to you and it would always remain YOUR book?
Would you be interested to sign up on one side or the other?
Someone actually came up with this idea and it already exists here in Belgium (in Brussels)!
If you want to check it out, here’s the link to the site: Urban Library
It’s a new site and doesn’t have many subscribers yet but the principle is very simple: you sign up and share one of your books. Other people can find your book and your location through the site and then you just agree on a time for the pick-up, simple as that.
I don’t know how it is in other countries – let me know if you have this in your city – but over here the English section in a library for example is pretty limited (also a reason that I don’t go to the library) so this is a great idea to get my hands on more English books, or books that are so great that people have bought them but don’t want to sell or give them away permanently.
So what do you think about all this? Yay or nay?
