A neighborhood in Berlin found a great new way to promote literacy and books. Residents of the area happily participate in a free book exchange that happens in an unlikely and unique place.
There are a few shelves in each of the trees, with plastic covers to protect the books from any bad weather.
There are a wide variety of books exchanged in the kiosk, in both German and English, with genres ranging from children's lit to contemporary fiction.
The Book Forest's purpose is to encourage literacy in the surrounding area, and it became very popular.
