I love this story about a guy in Romania who created a mini-library in his apartment building. It makes me want to do the same. But I live in a house with my family and it would be weird if people just came in.
Speaking of libraries, did you know you can get a New York City Public Library card even if you don't live in one of the five boroughs? Any person who lives, works, goes to school or pays property taxes in New York State is eligible. It's worth it for the e-book library, alone!
