The last book swap this year!

This will be a special edition of The Second Life of a Book, because it will be this year’s last! Don’t let the winter chill and unfavourable weather discourage you from visiting the Wyspiański Pavilion this coming Sunday (the 15th of December) in order to spend time surrounded by excellent books. But there is more! We have prepared a surprise for the fans of our campaign: an unusual competition – A Book Christmas Present. The first ten participants to bring ten books published after 1995 will receive bags with the campaign’s logo, filled with books. Get ready! This will be some event!

See you on Sunday (the 15th of December) at 3 p.m. at the Wyspiański Pavilion (pl. Wszystkich Świętych 2). Don’t forget to familiarise yourself with the competition’s terms and conditions. Good luck!

The Second Life of a Book is a joint campaign of the Krakow Festival Office and Bookeriada.pl. Everyone can take part in the free book swap; just bring at least one book and a maximum of ten books if they are in good condition. Books published till 1995 can be swapped only for those that were also published till that year, whereas newer books (published after 1995) can be swapped for every book available during the given book swap. Find out more about the campaign at: www.drugiezycieksiazki.pl. So far, 17 events helped over 5,000 people swap books, with nearly 15,000 books finding new owners. Over 800 volumes (out of 2,300 books donated to libraries by campaign participants) ended up at the Regional Public Library, with 124 more going to the Bibliopaths’ Zone.
