Book-crossing in Yakutsk

 “Book-crossing” social movement acts under a principle “share a book when you read it”. From today Yakutsk joined this world-wide social project.

Everyone can be a participant of book-crossing, thus, taking or leaving read books in public places. In Yakutsk it can be done in NEFU buildings, several cafes and “Polar Star” hotel.

Unfortunately, the event is gathering not many people though the organizers are sure in the popularity of the project. According to the organizer, Dmitry Efimov, about two years was spent on the project realization during which they have found shelves and places for their placement and made advertising posters.
