To join the BookCrossing, simply bring along books related to the monthly theme and share them with us, then choose books you would like to adopt! You can also borrow books that other people have shared and read them on the lawn – even if you don’t bring any yourself!

-  We only accept books that are in good condition

-  We only accept legal copies of books

-  Magazines, newspapers and textbooks are also not accepted
