Book swapping in London, News

Book swaps for London at #lonconf!

This (cold, but stunning) morning at the London Policy Conference Chris Gilson from Book Swaps for London presented the Book Swaps for London campaign plan to Boris Johnson, the London Mayor.  Chris explained the vision to have book swaps in tube and train stations all over London by the Olympics, and how it could involve community groups and make London a ‘capital of reading as well as sporting achievement’.

Boris agreed to look into the possibility of getting book swaps established, though he did warn that TfL often receives requests for ventures on station premises.  It’s a very, very good start.

Some very good Guardian coverage is here – http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2011/dec/12/book-swaps-london-tube-stations

Our next step is to get in touch with the people met today that can help us to get the campaign into high gear!
