Very nice idea!

And for those that reach the expiry date, there's that shelf in Kamppi centre (ground floor, north corner) where you can leave books you no longer want for others to pick up.

Thanks for reminding me.

Now a friend of mine commented something that might be useful. It would be a great idea to put a sticker in each book that you received in a box and didn't take. Then if there are, say, three stickers in a book, you can throw it away instead of letting it wonder endlessly.

I would also like to take this opportunity to advertise that the Sello library is going to host a book recycling event on saturday August 27. Anyone can bring their books in and can take whatever they want from the recycle shelves. There'll also be an auction for old books (100+ years kind of old) removed from their collections that day.

I would strongly suggest you mark for removal books that you *neither* read nor kept. It would be wasteful to throw away books that everyone who has received the box has read, but no one wants to keep forever, I find.
