12 - station-library provided by Franziska Wegener

The time waiting for your train to arrive can be very boring. Specially when it is late. Some count the tiles on the walls, some paw the ground, read the timetable or offical advertisement journals edited by the railwaycompanies.

It doesn´t have to be like that: the station-library unites pastime and education. At first you put library-machines in the big station and then time after time in the smaller ones. With your personal chip which could be integrated in your ticket you borrow a book. You use your time. Of course each station is special. There is region-related literature for tourists. You can take the books home and bring them back after a month. You put them in special boxes right next to the library-machines. Regularly the books you may choose from the library-machines change.

We all become more educated and are less stressed waiting for trains.
