Public bookshelf

by Volker Weber

Bücherschrank

This is one of those really neat ideas: a public bookshelf. If you want to read something, go there and take a book. After you read it, you put it back. If you have a really nice book, take it there. Others might enjoy it.

The photo is geocoded. Click through and Flickr will tell you where the bookshelf is.

Nette Idee. Als ich noch in Darmstadt wohnte, vor 6 Jahren, gab es so einen Bücherschrank auch in der Viktoriastraße, schräg gegenüber der Goetheschule (Johannesviertel). Ob es den noch gibt?
Und im Prinz-Georg-Garten im Pretlack’schen Gartenhaus befindet sich ein schönes Lesezimmer, das nach dem gleichen Prinzip funktioniert (http://www.schloesser-hessen.de/schloesser/darmstadt/darmstadt.htm).

Well done. Low entry barrier :)
We have this nice one. I think it is part of the BookCrossing project.

Unfortunately at the other end of the city.

Brilliant and saddening to think that some muppet will vandalise it in the near future.

Dieter, den in der Viktoriastraße hatte ich auch zuerst gesehen. Vor Jahren haben den mal nachts ein paar Idioten kaputt gemacht, aber ich meine, der steht wieder. Den hier abgebildeten in Bessungen gibt es noch nicht so lange. Hier noch ein Bericht aus der FAZ.

Paul, yes that happens but the muppets aren't winning.

Has anyone catalogued the contents online? I know that's not the point, I'm just curious what books are in there.

We will have to ask alanlepo to do that. :-)
