This simple map shows public bookcases near you. The information is loaded from OpenStreetMap.
A public or open bookcase is a cabinet, shelf or box used for the exchange and storage of books. The public bookcase is available to the general public. The exchange is free of charge, anonymous and without any formalities.
I have not found a map showing the open bookcases, street libraries, bookboxes, reading boxes, open bookshelves and reading banks from OSM. Because I find the public bookcases a good thing and want to support it, I have created this map.
You can add this map to your homescreen from your smartphone. Use the “add to homescreen” function in your browser (iOS, Android, etc.)
