Coland - Kiosks for Bookcrossing / Novel Bookcrossing Concept

Coland - Kiosks for Bookcrossing
Coland - Kiosks for Bookcrossing

You may find it inconvenient to borrow books from local libraries and sometimes you cannot find the book that we want to borrow in the library. Now with Coland, you could solve the problems above.
Coland is a set of kiosks for bookcrossing all over the city. Since most old kiosks are now abandoned, we can reform these kiosks and o some decoration to build the Coland. Users can share some of their books with Coland or they can borrow books from Coland at the same time. Coland can get the funding by cooperating with local education department, book stores and libraries. Secondhand textbooks can also be accepted by Coland.
