What is this commitment about?
Public bookcases are a fantastic way to make books you've already read available to other people for free, while also finding great new reading material for yourself.
On the OpenBookCase page, you'll find a map where you can find many bookcases in your city. If a bookcase near you is not listed yet, you can easily add it yourself.
What are 5-Minute Commitments?
With our 5-Minute Commitments, we want to inspire you to easily integrate volunteering into your everyday life. They are independent of non-profit organizations and allow you to individually get involved for people and nature in your neighborhood.
Sort out books you've already read and take them to a public bookcase near you.
No special previous knowledge is necessary.
You'll probably have to walk a short distance to the nearest bookcase. In many cases, however, this can be wonderfully combined with a walk.
This project is location independent.
We are a social enterprise from Berlin with a big dream: We want a world in which everyone contributes to a better and more sustainable future according to their possibilities and regardless of time budget, language or previous knowledge. For this purpose, we gather on vostel.de numerous engagement offers from non-profit organizations that are looking for volunteers. By doing this, we show concrete possibilities for action in order to become socially active and would like to motivate above all the younger generations to get involved for a better world.More about the organisation
