Public Bookshelves - A Novel Idea

Germany has discovered the concept of public bookshelves according to an article in The Christian Science Monitor. Public libraries in this country have been doing similar things for years. My branch library has a paperback and magazine exchange that I frequent. It's totally unmonitored and housed in the entry way. (The librarians straighten  the table top if things get too messy.)

Germany has taken the concept a step further and the idea is spreading. Donations and volunteers support the effort. Read the whole article HERE. (Thanks to K. Krentz for pointing out this article.)
