Books for everyone!

And here's another wonderful initiative by the Lebanese NGO arcenciel.aec. These public library fridges (now located in Sin El Fil Gardens) are a great way to pay it forward. Give a book, borrow one, read it and pass it on. Little things make a big difference.. and reading books opens a world of possibilities!
Their goal is to collaborate with more municipalities and spread them all around the country. #publiclibraryfridges  #payitforward
