Mission Statement

Giving books the love they deserve!

Description

Reaching a higher level of consciousness, throughout reading materials shared between members of society.

Bookla is a platform that is about making a shared library of books for the people in cities over the globe;

How it works ?

So, If you live in Berlin, you can look for books let's say "Hermann Hesse's Siddartha", and what you can do is that you can search the library, find the book you are looking for, then borrow it from the owner, or reclaim it.

As a book owner, borrow, or give away books in your language. Be it English, Spanish, German, Chinese, Arabic... etc.

Borrowing will be working with a caution, so your books are safe.
