what is reading arch?

Reading arch - a stationary object of urban architecture, established in the Dnieper. It denotes the zone the international book cloth release bookcrossing and is a bookcase and bench for seat.
The object is an interactive sculpture that any person can use. In the upper section, the arch is decorated with a lamp that allows you to use it even in the dark, without damage to the sight.

How to join in

The events are held every month during the warm period of the year and are free of charge. There are no rules! Anyone can bring any book to exchange and choose any other for themselves. However, we have several traditions/principles/values that are requested to be respected:

Our traditions

The Value of Creation

In addition to literary works, we invite you to share current study guides, dictionaries, as well as periodicals that have an independent artistic value. For example, SHOW magazines or La Boussole.

Letter to the Reader

This is a small description that helps you share your impression of the book and help the next reader to love or understand it; we issue it during the promotion and ask you to fill it in.

Topics

Sometimes we dedicate the book exchange to a certain topic. For example, children's literature, Ukrainian books, textbooks, or classics. On such days, we recommend you share such editions. Variety keeps things interesting!

Socializing

The purpose of the events at the Reading Arch is to rally around our intellectual hobby; we encourage you to visit us with friends and family and stay tuned!

Inspiration and Development

We invite writers and researchers who are ready to hold informal readings for the participants of the events.
