Bookcases in Frankfurt

All bookcases in the city at a glance

A beautiful project is spreading

In November 2009, a project started at Merianplatz that has since become firmly established in the cityscape and can be found in more and more places in more and more parts of the city: the open bookcase. The concept of the "world's smallest library" is as simple as it is ingenious: instead of throwing books away or letting them gather dust on the bookshelf, citizens can place books that they no longer read themselves in the open bookcases. There they can be borrowed or taken away by other bookworms who, in return, put one of their old books back. With only one exception so far, the bookcases are open around the clock and anyone can put books worth reading in or take them with them.

The free exchange, lending and giving away of literature goes down well with Frankfurters. Again and again you see people stopping at the cupboards, browsing through what's on offer, exchanging ideas with others who are interested and perhaps finding their next favourite book here. The bookcases are looked after by volunteer patrons who keep an eye on the fact that the bookcases, which are mostly financed from the annual budget of the local councils, remain in good condition. The positive balance so far is not only a steady increase in bookcases in the city - there are now over 70 of these mini-libraries - but also the fact that so far there has been hardly any damage to the cabinets.

The book, so often gladly declared dead, is for many still the most beautiful way to discover literature. It is also nice that there are some people who like to share their favorite literature with other literature lovers. And so it can happen that you find a little message from the previous owner in one of the books taken from the bookcases. Whether it's a crime novel, a classic, non-fiction, fiction, a picture book or a children's book - there's actually something to discover for every taste in the bookcases. A really nice project, which is maintained by the Office of Road Construction and Development of the City of Frankfurt.
