There is something very heartening about The Little Library in Melbourne Central shopping centre. Nestled amongst the chain stores in one of the city’s largest shopping malls is a nook filled with books that may be borrowed or swapped for free. The library works on an honour system — there are no forms to fill, no barcodes to scan. Anyone can simply take a book with no questions asked.
It should go without saying that this honour system must be respected for the library to remain open — but I’ll say it anyway. Let’s keep this lovely little project alive, and become enviably well-read in the process.
