Creative mini libraries installed in Georgia’s cities and villages
Creative mini libraries have appeared in public spaces and parks throughout Georgia’s different regions. Author of this helpful, educational and entertaining initiative is National Library of Georgia.

In total extraordinary book storage boxes have been installed in around eight cities and few villages of Georgia. As it has been reported, anyone is free to choose and borrow a book from the mini library known as a “Book Nest”. Also, anyone is more than welcome to donate his/her book to the library as
well.

A person behind the project who designs these incredible thematic book cases Book Nests, as Giorgi Kekelidze , Head of the National Library of Georgia calls them, is an employee of the library Tengo Modua.

One can already find attractive Book Nests and select a book to one’s preference in following cities: Tbilisi, Kutaisi, Samtredia, Chiatura, Telavi, Batumi, Ozurgeti and Chokhatauri, as well as in some villages.

It is noteworthy, that each book case is unique, since each of them was designed to suit a particular region, where it was placed. For instance, in Georgia’s seaside city of Batumi a ship was erected, in Samtredia – a bike, whereas in Telavi - a barrel, demonstrating region’s winemaking culture, etc. The initiative aims to promote books and reading among society, especially in new generation.
