Ruilbank Benches Offer Free Reading for Passersby

Benches are just benches, until a huge red clip is attached to one end of it. Then it becomes a Ruilbank, which is Dutch for “barter bench.”

Essentially, they’re there to hold some reading material in place. Whether it’s a book or a magazine or a newspaper, this trusty red clip will keep it in place.

Reading Bench

It’s a project by Pivot Creative to get people reading more – and to pass on good reads. From July 28th to September 28th, nine locations areas around Amsterdam will have benches supplied with different reading material from various sponsors, including newspaper Het Parool and the city’s public library.

Passersby are free to read, take, or barter the reading material with something else when they come across it.

Wouldn’t it be fun if someone did a similar thing on our side of the planet?
