A New Twist to Public Library
I was reading an article today about a new concept of a public library in Manila, Philippines. A bibliophile decided to open a "library" in 2000 after his parents passed on by collecting books and setting shop in front of his house. Soon, people took the hint and started reading books. The bibliophile doesn't charge a cent to anyone. Anyone can take a book permanently. He started from a collection of less than 100 books in 2000. Now, he has between 3,000-4,000. It's amazing.
