Our new outdoor library

This is in my neighborhood a quite little corner where you can read books and stories or study outdoor. This is a nice quiet corner that the neighborhood people built on a volunteer basis with benches and a roof that gives shade and protects the people who sit and read it. There is also a small broad near where children sometimes play... All the books out there are donated by people and sometimes people add, lend or return books so there are a great variety of topics to read. Do you have a outdoor library in your place?

That's a good way to encourage people to read(more). I have a few books that i can donate here but I wish i can find a place or someone willing to swap books though..

Hey thats a very good initiative. We dont have such things over here. Reading it in the nature must be so relaxing and pleasurable

I like that and this is so nice to encourage people to read more. I just wonder whether the books will get wet if it rains heavily. A few weeks ago I saw a modern book booth nearby my home. At first I thought it was a mini library but later I found that it is a boostore which sells book automatically. I just wonder who will buy a book in that way since you can take it to browse it at first. You can only see its cover and not much information about the books.

The books are covered with a roof over them and during the rainy season they will also be covered with nylon... Maybe this book booth has a site on the internet that you can see their books they sell with more information of each book?

@hereandthere In this case, you need to design more sophisticated cover to protect tropical storms...

Our neighbers also do books swapping with us especially in children's books between our kids.... That outdoor library is very nice place to be with my kids and read them a story or even take the guitar and play songs...

Someone would steal all the books in the USA.

But after you read the book you can return and take one else....why to steal it if it's for free....?

No, we have not such outdoor library here, and not always weather would fit to keep books outdoor.

Perhaps you can find such a structure that will suit the weather in your area for such a outdoor library

What a brilliant idea. Sadly it would be vandalised here in the UK

That is a wonderful thing to have in a neighborhood!!! People here will have little libraries in darling structures outside their homes so people can take a book and leave a book, but nothing as big as the one in the photo.
