The exceptional year-round free book swap campaign. Join us!

Every literature lover would admit that simply having books in their personal library is a source of pride and joy. And even though they love each and every book selflessly, after a brief thought they would be able to point out at least one volume that they cherish a little bit less – a hasty purchase, a poorly matched gift, a book they have outgrown or got bored with. A book unread loses its magical power. It should not be wasted! Want a piece of advice? Find a new owner for it!

The Second Life of a Book is an undertaking of the Krakow Festival Office. Exchange participation rules are simple: it is enough to bring at least one, but no more than ten books. Important: the books must be in good condition. If you bring books published before 1995, you will be able to swap them only for other books published before 1995. People who bring new books (published after 1995) are allowed to select from all books, new and old alike.
