Fridge as bookcase: the nice initiative of Gorenje


GorenjeSupporting the project of free little libraries for the exchange of books, Gorenje will donate housings of its Retro design fridges, as bookcases in schools and local communities. The idea of free book exchange, following the British example of Little Free Library, took off in Slovenia as well. Little houses where people can leave books for someone else to read, or browse their contents for books we would like to read ourselves are emerging all over the country. But not only little houses – following the lead of librarian Zuhra Horvat from the Ecological society of Slovenj Gradec, they started using old fridges as bookcases as this proved to be a good way of safely storing books while they wait for new readers.
