You give, you take, everybody reads! Sitting amongst all the other newspaper boxes, we spotted this newspaper box - turned - library down the street from our house. If your friends don't host book exchange, here's an alternative way to swap with your community.
Every once in a while you'll see people rummaging through to find a new read, or someone dropping off their own books. It probably doesn't hurt either that this "branch" is in front of a favorite neighborhood bookstore, Quimby's.
This is a genius way to distribute items and we could see this system being used for other things such as previously read newspapers (obviously) and magazines; used clothes; and old movies and music - anything that can easily fit in the box.
After telling one of our friends about this, they said they also have one in their neighborhood, Logan Square, and they use it all the time. Does anyone have something like this in their community? If not, maybe you could start one!
