New book exchange up and running in Monaco

In the spirit of “out with the old, in with the new”, a new book exchange service has launched at the Marché de la Condamine in Monaco. 

Maybe you’ve already finished the books you received for Christmas or are using these days off to have a good old sort out. Whatever the motivation, the new book exchange programme at the Condamine market is the perfect place to drop off some of the well-thumbed or even forgotten books that are taking up precious space on your bookshelves.

Open to visitors and residents alike, the service not only encouraging wider reading and the chance to discover a whole new story or subject for free, but also supports the Principality’s sustainability pledges by giving books a second life.

It has been in place for around a month now and is the second such service in Monaco. A similar book exchange shelf is available at the Parc Princesse Antoinette on the Boulevard du Jardin Exotique, so if you don’t see anything that catches your eye in the market, then try out the park’s selection!
