It's Friday, and I bet many of you are looking forward to this afternoon, when you can take off from work and go out for a drink with friends. Maybe followed by some quiet reading time at home?
At the Gyopar, a small pub in a town outside of Budapest, you can do both at the same time. Listen to this genius idea: The Gyopar is a public library inside a pub.
Customers can quench their thirst not only for ales and spirits but enjoy some intellectual refreshment as well . . . The rules are simple. There are no registration or borrowing fees and the library works on a bring one, take one basis.
Books in the pub range from "ancient Greek biographies to modern sports encyclopedias."
Does anything of this kind exist in your town?
