The Second Life of a Book at MOCAK Library

Published at:17.07.2015

On Sunday 2 August, we would like to invite you to the event The Second Life of a Book, organised in collaboration with the Krakow Festival Bureau.

3 pm
Visual Reading: Telegram
Literary and artistic workshop for young people and adults.

The session has been inspired by Ryszard Krynicki’s visual poem G. Together, we will read the author’s selected poems and have a creative go ourselves, combining the means of expression to be found both in literature and visual arts. Young people and adults invited. The session will be held in Polish. Please pre-register on: edukacja@mocak.pl or phone: 12 263 40 29.

4 pm – 5 pm
Book swapping

Everybody can take part in the cashless book swap. All you need to do is to bring at least one or more books, up to ten, which should be in good condition. Pre-1995 books can only be swapped for books also published by that year. Post-1995 books can be swapped for any others.

To circulate books enlivens home libraries, facilitates getting to know literature and broadens the readers’ literary horizons. Everybody can swap something that they have read or no longer required, perhaps for the very book that they had been searching for high or low. Or else a book that you did not get on with may be just what another person can’t wait to lay their hands on! There are bound to be exciting surprises! It is both very simple and rewarding to present a book to someone else.
