I personally haven’t visited a library in longer than I care to say, but if I happened upon this public outdoor library installed in the middle of a Belgian vineyard I would be tempted to grab a cork screw and picnic blanket to make a day of it. The outdoor library entitled Bookyard was built by Italian artist Massimo Bartolini for the Belgian art festival TRACK: A Contemporary City Conversation in Ghent. Visitors are invited to peruse the stacks and are free to take any book they find for a small donation at a designated box. Hopefully they empty the shelves before it rains. (via designboom)
