Spread This Idea


All subway stations near where people enter. It would have a positive impact on the entire district.

My project idea is...

Put bookcases in all subway stops where anyone can drop off donated books and anyone who wants to take a book onto the subway to read can take one, both adult and children's books.

So that people could... 

always have an opportunity to have something free to read on the subway (promotes literacy); recycle used books (contributing to clean environment); improves quality of life (something to read on the subway when you forgot to bring something); have free books (save money); revives the print publishing industry (books, not kindles!)
