Perhaps you’ve noticed that little “libraries” are cropping up all over the place. Old phone booths, newspaper boxes, mailboxes and other serviceable containers have been cleaned up, painted up, set up and stocked with books that passersby are welcome to borrow and replace.
Well, here’s another one, in Berlin. Created by Baufachfrau Berlin and known as Forest Books, this sidewalk library is constructed of bolted-together tree trunks, each inset with several protected book-holding niches. Read the story and see more photos on Inhabitat. Read more about the international book-distribution movement spurred on by the folks at Little Free Library.
