To implement this initiative, the mini-libraries designed by architect Leni Farenza, one of the artists who is part of the Loulé Design Lab, were distributed to various locations in the municipality.
With the main objective of inspiring a taste for reading, the Municipal Library also intends, with this project, to get closer to the community and develop citizenship, believing that the population will not vandalise the structures and will return the books after reading.
Interested readers may take books with no return date and, if they wish, they may leave books in substitution, in order to create a book exchange network.
The mini libraries will have books for everyone, from adults to children, in different languages and of different types, with fiction as the main genre.
The mini-libraries can be found at the following locations: Avenida José da Costa Mealha (near the Cineteatro) and Largo de São Francisco, in Loulé; Rua do Ameixial, in Ameixial; Rua do Rossio, in Tôr; Pátio da Dª Antónia, in Benafim; Rua Vasco da Gama, in Quarteira; Jardim das Comunidades, in Almancil; Rua Dr. João Batista Ramos Faísca, in Boliqueime.
