The Book Stop Project in Intramuros 2017

It was during the summer of 2016 when I discovered The Book Stop Project. I love books and libraries so anything that imbibe such concept will appeal to me. Last year, Intramuros became one of the destinations of The Book Stop Project. Check out my post here.

After several months, The Book Stop Project traveled to other places. Fast forward to 2017, the structure of the mobile library was given a major improvement. The roof of the mobile library has wooden bleachers that provided ample and comfortable space for reading. Kudos to the people behind WTA Architecture for always thinking out of the box and believing that libraries remain as partners for creativity and invention.

In my biased opinion, Plaza de Roma is still the best venue for The Book Stop Project. I love that there's a library in the middle of a spacious park and the historical structures in the backdrop.

Today a reader, tomorrow a leader

The Book Stop Project will remain in Intramuros until July 22, 2017.  I encourage everyone to participate in the book donation or exchange project. Leave your books in exchange for other books. Better yet, donate than accumulate. A book you haven't read for years surely deserves another hungry reader. I also noticed the regular presence of children to teenagers.  Unfortunately, the library does not seem to have enough books for this age group. I urge everyone to take this opportunity to donate books for young readers. Although the library welcomes any type of book you can leave.

If Intramuros is far and inconvenient from your end, I can offer a little assistance. You can ship the books to my Manila address and I can leave the books for you. Just send me an email dianewrites15(at)gmail(dot)com.

Have a great day ahead!

  3. I like this whole library concept, bringing the books to where people are, like this park. Plus the seating on the roof, great. I am a librarian so love to see people reading.
