A Thousand and One Books is a crowd-sourced library filled with a 1001 books, each one donated by someone who loves it and thinks that other people might love it too. The project is part of the Empathy Museum and explores armchair travel into other lives and places.
The books in the library are available for the public to take out and pass on. You can view our collection and the dedications online where you can also track who is reading each book and where. A Thousand and One Books opened as part of LIFT 16 in June and will tour during 2017.
