French design collective House Work has created The Livre Exchange, a free urban library that was presented at the International Design Biennial 2013 in Saint-Étienne.

The library exists as a collection of transparent boxes suspended from trees in various locations such as public parks and different spaces where people tend to read.

The project is aimed at the promotion of reading but the boxes also act as a shelter for books that can get damaged when exposed to the elements. Visitors can take a book and replace it with one of their own making it a niche, fun and creative way to encourage people to pick up a book, take timeout from the digital world and simply read.
