Cool Bookish Places

A Beach Library

For book lovers, beach reading is just about as good as it gets. The only bad part is that moment when you’ve just finished a book, it’s midday, and you do not not not want to go back to the room or house or condo to get something else. But what if sitting just down the beach was a little library like this?

Designed by Matali Crasset with the support of the city of Marseilles, this little beach library has three covered reading areas and a selection of over 300 books to check out. With a steel frame covered in tarps, it’s portable, cool, and a perfect pop-up reading retreat. The library will be open through the summer season on La Romaniquette beach in southern France.
