Do you have too many books, want to declutter, work on updating your library, stare or sell your books? There are different ways to connect and share your love for books 🙂
You can donate to public libraries, schools or associations who can use your help in this.
2) Sell your used books:
There are Facebook groups in Lebanon where book lovers can swap or buy books. There is also the lovely BookYard event that happens in Jbeil (and sometimes other locations) and there is the Monot Street Book Market.
3) The Free Libraries:
Three days ago, I saw on Facebook a video about the Little Free Library in Beirut Digital District and in Sin el Fil Public Garden (saw that one maybe 2 years ago there), I don’t know if there are other places but it would be sooooo nice to have other places like this pop up here and there.
What ideas do you have? Do you know any Little Free Libraries in other areas of Beirut and the country? Share your tips on book sharing/selling/swapping/giving and connecting! Long live culture 🙂
Here are a few links that might be interesting for you to browse for your search for books, public libraries and local events:

Back in March, I had a quite musical weekend, in which I had the chance to enjoy different types of musical styles: Occidental Classical Orchestra with the Lebanese Philharmonic Orchestra (Friday), Bar Farouk in Metro Al Madina singing Lebanese, Levant and Middle Eastern classics in Arabic (ranging from the 1930s I think till 1975) and the grande finale on Sunday the Armenian Youth Orchestra playing classic cartoons pieces at Al Bustan Festival.
It’s spring now and the music festivals are starting to peak their programs. It’s looking wonderful! A cultural beautiful summer it will be 🙂
