The Library That Lives in a Tree

Created by Didier Muller for this year’s International Design Biennial in France, The Library Exchange is an installation intended to foster intra-community book donations and borrowing. People are encouraged to browse the hanging containers and take a book that interests them–and leave one for others.

It seems simple enough that a local library could put one together for a bring one/take one kind of event, especially in a nearby park. I’d go. What about you?
