A Thessaloniki municipal authority has installed libraries in bus stops to improve local residents’ daily commute. The idea originated with the Pylaia-Hortiati municipality and was implemented with the Filyro Citizens’ Communication Movement. It all has started about two years ago, with the first bus stop starting with about 100 books.
According to organizers, not everyone is conscientious about returning books and some are actively destructive, but a balance is struck by the many people that actively support them and fill them with books again and again. The most important thing is that the citizens have embraced the initiative and keep it alive.
