Bibliophiles may want to consider a stop-over at Tallinn International Airport just to visit the wonderful free library for flyers. Opened two years ago, the library runs entirely on the honor system. There’s no membership requirement, no library card, and no overdue books. Anyone—you don’t have to be an Estonian resident—can use the facility while waiting for a flight and can even take a book.The multi-language library encourages travelers to leave a book if they take one.

One of the things that makes this library even more special is the fact that every book in the collection has been donated by a Tallinn resident or a visitor.

The library is located by Gate 1 and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  1. What a wonderful idea! I wish my local airports had something like this!

  2. What a great idea! Do you think it will catch on in other airports around the world?
