Libraries Work Because We Do!

wow, what an awesomely fun project from my fellow Slovenians.

I can well imagine those dusty librarians having immense amount of fun packaging these together and trying to imagine the reader who will have receivedThe Stranger, 1Q84 and The Little Prince in an existentialists pacage, and how that will impact her life from that point onwards, and how she will  become a better person and help older people cross the street, and gather courage to divorce that annoying husband after 15 years and start having relaxed fun in life again.

i got a bit carried away here, but the project really sounds like something libraries should do more often. people like to get surprised in real world.

Slovenian library creates surprise book packs based on genre

Last year we saw both people and dogs loaned out by libraries, but it would seem there’s still plenty that can still be done with books as well. Aiming to introduce more fun into library loaning, The National and University Library of Slovenia recently ran a program offering mystery packs of books to their customers.

    Sounds fantastic. Wife & I rediscovered libraries some years ago when we simply ran out of space on our bookshelves and have been enthusiastic ever since. Needless to say I’m the 4square mayor of our local one 🙂
