By browsing through the dummy shelves, passers-by can choose any book, scan the QR code and download the piece in a number of formats. And, it’s completely free.

Works of Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, London, Christie and many other world-known authors have been among the favorites. The library will stay open around the clock through November 17th, 2013.
