There’s a micro-library in Melbourne Central shopping centre! That’s the best reason I’ve heard to visit a mall in a very long time.
The micro-library got underway with a thousand books that were donated or picked up in op shops. Since it opened for business two months ago, there has been a turnover of five hundred books. Geez, when I was a student at Melbourne Uni, I would have been stopping past to browse the collection every other day.
I was somewhat surprised that the executive director of the Australian Retailers Association, Russell Zimmerman, had never heard of the concept before. Read the full story here.
