Encouraging reading with a free exchange of books
World Book Day takes place this year on 23 April and the Museum will be taking part in BookCrossing, a global campaign to encourage reading through the free exchange of books.
This Friday, 22 April, our library will be leaving 23 art books, the majority exhibition catalogues, in the following locations: 11 in Bilbao (Gran Via, Renfe Abando station, Azkuna Zentroa, the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum (entrance), Expo-Gela (San Francisco), Plaza San Pedro Deusto, Funicular Artxanda, Campo Volantín, etc.,); plus 2 in Algorta, 2 in Basauri, 2 in Berango, 2 in Durango, 2 in Portugalete, and 2 in Oñati (Gipuzkoa).
The aim is that everyone who picks up a book and reads it then leaves it somewhere else around the world. Read and share!
