Urban Street Library - The Hanging Shelves

There's a social initiatives in my city which is known as the Urban Street  Library.

According to their Facebook page, the initiator of this project aims to promote a  culture of reading regardless of time and place by providing a free literary experience for the members of the public . The project's mission is to encourage reading, sharing and community spirit through a small-scale urban intervention in engaging public spaces of the city. They believe that a collaborative effort from us as a community will deliver a more impactful change.

Having heard of this initiative but didn't have time to check them out during their launch, I was pleasantly surprised to encounter one of the public library while at a mall recently.  I went back again the following week, bringing with me 4 novels from my collection books that I was happy to exchange for new titles.

Even though the choice weren't that good, I went away happy with four new titles that I am looking forward to reading very soon.

I don't know how long they will be in the mall, but if you're in my city, keep an eye for the hanging shelves and the treasures within.
