New Place for Book Swapping in Syktyvkar
One more book swapping place opens in Syktyvkar. This week the free book exchange stall will appear on the first floor of the Parma Shopping Centre.
On 29 November at 4:00 PM, the National Library of Komi will hold a free market of retro magazines at the new book crossing point. Syktyvkar people will go back to the past and recall what they were reading in the 1970s and 1980s. The magazines that will be displayed for you to take home are Roman-Gazeta, Krestianka (Peasant Girl), Season's Fashion, and Bozhur.
You will also be able to take a chance in a quiz - Back to the USSR - based on historic facts from the Soviet period. The most active participants will get small gifts from the library.
The book crossing stall will be available every day from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM. On Fridays, interactive entertainment centered around reading and literature will be offered to the visitors. The book stock will be refilled from the library holdings once a week.
If you wish to take part in the book crossing initiative, you can bring books from your home library and just leave them on the book shelf.
