PASSERINVEST GROUP, a. s., the leading Czech development and investment company, has supported the non-profit Adopt a BookBooth project for the third time. Today there was a gala opening of another non-traditional public library in Brumlovka Park, which is part of the multifunctional BB Centrum in Prague 4. This “BookBooth”, a reconverted telephone booth, originated with the support of PASSERINVEST GROUP and its patrons are football legends Antonín Panenka and Karol Dobiaš.
Visitors to Brumlovka Park, BB Centrum tenants and also the public at large will be able to select any of the displayed books and borrow it free of charge to take home to peruse or to the local parks to read a few pages to their children. They can also bring any book they do not want or have already read to the BookBooth to offer to other readers.
“Our first BookBooth in Baarův Park has been operating for almost a full year now and has met with positive acclaim. This time, in this BookBooth in Brumlovka Park, we have added books for children, because the park includes a large playground. And of course there are books with a football and sports theme, since its patrons are Antonín Panenka and Karol Dobiaš. Moreover we also use the BookBooths to promote non-profit organisations that we ourselves support and which we think deserve to be brought to a wider public. In this most recent one it is the Taťána Kuchařová Foundation, specifically the DOMA BEZ OBAV (Home without Fear) project to support seniors in Prague 4,” stated Kristýna Samková, the Marketing & PR Director from PASSERINVEST GROUP, with regard to the new BookBooth.
“We are very pleased that a second BookBooth will be serving people in BB Centrum, following the one in Baarův Park. This time it is in the beautiful environment of Brumlovka Park, where the public will get another opportunity for intellectual relaxation,” added Pavel Železný, the co-author of the BookBooth project.
BookBooth is a non-profit project that originated in 2013 through the financial support of the Think Big programme, now known as O2 Smart Up. Since then the BookBooth team has already converted and put into operation more than 18 old telephone booths across the Czech Republic and inspired other enthusiasts to make dozens of public libraries that are revitalising public spaces.
BB Centrum is one of the largest and most successful development projects in the Czech Republic. But it is not just an office centre – BB Centrum is a multifunctional complex with all the civic amenities, offering housing possibilities and job opportunities, relaxation, education and also cultural events.
