Here at Street Library we are always astonished by the creativity that goes into building all projects. We are always looking for interesting ways in which to share books with communities. Then we came across this; a carved out tree that holds books in Berlin!
A forest of book-bearing trees has sprouted up on the streets of Prenzlauer Berg in Berlin!
Neighborhood residents are welcome to leave a book they loved, or take one from the plastic protected hutches cut into the tree trunks.
Three or four rectangular box shelves are carved into each trunk. The wooden boxes are protected from the elements by heavy plastic flaps that are hung over the openings.
Great stuff from the other side of the world!
