Book swapping in London, News

Book swapping comes to Stratford Station!

Today was a great day for the Books for London team; after several months of planning, we were able to install a book swap shelf in Stratford Station. Stratford Station handles over 17 million passengers ever year, so it’s a fantastic achievement for us.

Our shelf is located in the main subway, next to the Kiosk, and close to the entrance to Platform 5 (Central line West).

Please have a look and let us know what you think. We’re also very keen for people to help look after the shelf, so please get in touch if you’re interested. Here’s a look at the new book swap shelf:

We’re also going to be working with Newham Volunteers to keep the shelf stocked and tidy, so we’re very grateful for their help at Stratford.

Thanks to station manager James, Dave and Ian at Greater Anglia and Stratford Station for all of their help and support for the book swap!


One thought on “Book swapping comes to Stratford Station!

  1. This looks really cool, although its a shame for us commuters who do not travel on the tube as we cannot access the bookswap without passing through the barriers.
