The Krakow Festival Office, which is a cultural institution of the City of Krakow, informs that the meetings of the Second Life of a Book have been suspended until further notice.

Books live when they are read! Your slightly forgotten, dog-eared volumes can find a new lease of life and new fans if you bring them to the Second Life of Books exchange. The Second Life of a Book is a 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.
