​​​​​​​​​​​​Your book can make all the difference to someone's journey!​


Meet "Library at the Station" - our new collaborative venture. In February 2016, we launched the "Library at the Station" project - libraries for exchanging and lending books at train stations throughout the country.  In “Library at the Station” you’ll find a wide range of books, across a variety of genres, from which you are invited to borrow freely and return after you have finished reading, to make your waiting time at the station more pleasant.​

You can borrow books at one station and return them to another station, so you can enjoy the book during your trip.

 

Have you finished reading a good book?  Bring it to the collection boxes at the train stations so that others can enjoy it too, and take part in creating an enjoyable and enriching experience for others.

 

Wondering how you borrow a book?  Go to the library at the station, choose a book from a wide range of books, take it with you to the train, get on the train and ... just enjoy the ride!

 

Finished reading the book you borrowed?  

We're pleased you enjoyed your read, and invite you, at the end of reading, to return the book to one of the libraries or collection boxes at the stations, so that others can enjoy it too!

Collection and stocking of the libraries is done by the "She-kulo Tov" organization, which operates "Repeat Story" - an environmental-social initiative providing rehabilitative employment for people coping with mental difficulties through the use of books. Through employment in "Return Story," participants gain professional skills and an opportunity to re-adjust to the labor market.​

The project has received positive feedback from both train passengers and on social media networks, as well as requests from authors who wish to hand over copies of their books and requests from the public who wish to submit books that they have finished reading. In addition, we've seen a trend of returning borrowed books and consistent delivery of books that have been read. In addition, about 20,000 books have been collected in the framework of special activities, in addition to those delivered to the collection boxes and stations every day.
