Bring your books to TEDxDelft and put them in our pop-up library. A pop-up library (or public bookcase) is one or more cabinets which may be freely and anonymously used for the exchange and storage of books without the formalities associated with libraries. When in public places these cabinets are of a robust and weatherproof design which are available at all times. However, cabinets installed in public or commercial buildings may be simple, unmodified book-shelves and may only be available during certain periods.
So: bring one of your favorite books, write something personal in it and put it in our library. Then, of course, take another one out and take it home.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxDelft, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxDelft event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
