The other day while walking in Bornheim, I noticed this funny little book case. I thought that it was just a display cabinate until a little boy walked up to it, looked inside and then pulled a book out to take away with him!
As Mister is quite the German boffin these days, I asked him to explain what the sign said and apparently these are library cases. You can take books from them as long as you bring them back, or replace them with other books. The one above is near to Bornheim Mitte station and had a couple of English books.
A week or so later, I noticed that there is one of these cases right opposite my apartment!! This one had a couple of English books in there too!
It’d be nice to share books with people, so I’d like to put books into the case next time I’m there. Maybe one day something I want to read will turn up (or even, maybe one day I’ll be able to read German!!!!)
If you’re in Frankfurt, keep an eye out for these cases!
