An Unconventional Library – Street Books

We always conceive libraries to be buildings with concrete walls and with rows and rows of bookshelves lined up with books. And we get so excited (or at least I do) about new libraries with new technologies and innovative designs that we sometimes for those few moments may seemed to have “misplaced” our (library’s) purpose and priorities.

So here’s paying tribute to one of the more unconventional libraries – Street Books

Street Books is a bicycle-powered mobile library, started by Street Librarian Laura Moulton who is an artist and writer living in Portland, Oregon. Her aim is to serve people who live outside – those who are not able to borrow a book from the library because they don’t have an ID.
