Frankfurt: the smallest library in town

last week, well honestly now its been two weeks, i spend some time in frankfurt/main with a dear friend of mine. she is living next to the bergerstrasse which i highly recommended to you for it's little fashion shops, cafes and of course book shops. there is one on a corner near to u-bahn/metro station merianplatz with a cafe in it! they have great breakfast- perfect for a sunday morning! 

but i don't want to talk about that. while wandering up and down i found this little closet, so to say, filled with books. and the little sign on it says: smallest library in town. everyone can lend books for free and donate books, only you have to write in the book you donate that you do so. isn't that a cool idea? i was head over heels for this. well, you know why, don't you?

i wanna share some pictures with you.

I always go to Frankfurt for the bookfair in October but have never seen that little library. Will look out for it next time!

We have this in Hannover too in several locations. I hope it continues to spread to other cities. It would go really well in Berlin don't you think?
