Books

The swapping bookshelf (UPDATED)
Everything that Catches our Eyes |

The swapping bookshelf incorporates an alternative approach to the traditional concept of public libraries. It promotes social interaction which can be achieved through books.
Our proposal includes a modern construction based on traditional bookshelf standards, where visitors can manage the bookshelf material on a full-time basis without the need of registering, subscribing or contributing to any fees.
The bookshelf’s resources rely upon the visitors’ response.
Visitors can borrow books and check them in after a period of time. The bookshelf’s collection is updated on a daily basis, since its function is based on any written material offered by the public.
The bookshelf is open to visitors 24 hours, seven days a week.
The aim of the bookshelf of Kifissia is to promote and aesthetic, cultural and educative value to the residents and visitors.
