It’s summertime and libraries adapt to the customs of this season. People have more spare time and libraries take advantage of it, taking their collections out of the library building and into parks, beaches and pools.

One of our sister libraries, Ljubljana City Library in Slovenia, is one of them: they offer their services in 2 swimming pools of Ljubliana and inform about it in their web page.

This library near water is open during July and August. Bathers can read by the pool in different languages. They also offer books for children and young adults. Borrowing books is free and membership card is not needed, users just take the books off the shelf and return it before leaving the pool.

Ljubljana City Library has two sister:  Kaunas County Public library (Lithuania) and Regional Public Library Krakow (Poland) and you can see more information about her in Facebook and Twitter.
