Lausanne | The bee joins the ladybird in the lending library project “Book finds Reader”

Our association Melissa (=bee in Greek) joins Coccinelle (=ladybird in French), a cozy coffee shop in the center of Lausanne, in order to share with the public selected books from our collection.

The library includes about 150 books in recent editions, in English and French, selected out of the 5’000 titles of our collection. A variety of subjects is offered, from all-time classics of world literature to studies on important questions of our changing world, such as artificial intelligence, relationships, work, children.

The books of our library on the 1st floor of Coccinelle café

These printed books are presented on the shelves of Coccinelle café. The book catalog is an OPAC (Open Public Access Catalog) system, easy to use, accessible from a smartphone. No need for any intervention of the coffee shop’s employees.

The homepage of our online catalog

After a single registration, you receive a unique “patron ID” number with which you can borrow, in a few simple clics, the books you want for a period of 14 days. Then, you return them to the coffee shop, without any fee.

Project start: Monday, 25th February, 2019.
