Book Swap Library @ Summerhall for Scottish Book Week 2015

Book Week Scotland is a week-long celebration of books and reading that takes place every November. This year Book Week Scotland 2015 will take place from Monday 23 – Sunday 29 November 2015 and ASCUS is participating by hosting the Book Swap Library at Summerhall all week from 11:00 – 18:00.

Come and swap your books for free at Summerhall! The principle of the ASCUS Book Swap Library is simple: give one, take one! There is no price or hierarchy in the books; all books are considered equal!


Every book comes with a story: where did you get it from? Did you like it? Why are you passing it on? You can leave a personal note in the books for future readers if you want, to give each book an identity and allow it to come with a story in addition to the story told in its pages. The event is organized by ASCUS Art & Science and the Artiscience Library Summerhall, so there will be books on arts and science but also books of all kinds, including books written in English, French, Spanish and other languages. The books can be found in the ASCUS cabinets outside the Red Lecture Theatre, just past the cafe. Check @BookSwapLibrary and @_ASCUS on Twitter for updates.
