The Book Swaps for London campaign is working towards establishing a London-wide book sharing scheme in London’s tube and train stations to be in operation by the opening ceremony of the Olympics.
With hundreds of thousands of visitors travelling through London’s stations, this highly visible scheme will help to cement London as a capital of literacy as well as sport.

Book swaps are very simple. Shelves are established in stations, and commuters can use them to pick up books they would like to read and drop off books that they want to give away.
