Free books and Vienna

Bookcase at Josef-Matthias-Hauer Platz

There are some cities around the world having a “free public library” with different solutions to store books.

The basic premise is that you can take any book you like and it is polite to put in some other book instead, but you are not obliged to do it.

So you can get a free book. And I was wondering if something like that is going on in Vienna. Well, it is.

The project is called “offener B├╝cherschrank” which can be roughly translated as “open bookcabinet”. To help you find them the good people behind the idea set up the web page.

There. Some free books for you all over Vienna – well, free in a sense that you don’t need to pay for them in money, but as stated before – put in any other book.
