2. Librarian Honors a Dying Tree by Turning It Into a Little Free Library
Who doesn’t like books? And really, who doesn’t like libraries?
When the ailing cottonwood at Sharalee Armitage Howard’s Coeur d’Alene front yard began dropping branches on cars parked below, Howard faced the inevitable. But rather than completely cut the tree down to ground level, she arranged with the removal crew to leave a considerable amount of stump intact and filled it with books for her neighbours and strangers to discover.
You can find out more about the project in this video.
3. "David Bowie Is ..." Exhibition now in your phone.
The app is based on the 2013 Victoria & Albert museum exhibition David Bowie Is, which toured the world for five years before it got finally settled at the Brooklyn Museum in 2018.

5. Browse Germany’s ‘Parthenon’ of Banned Books
In Kassel, Germany, at the very site where Nazis once burned over 2,000 books by Jewish and Marxist writers, one artist has built a colossal tribute to free speech. The “Parthenon of Books” is a giant temporary replica of the famous Greek temple in Athens. The installation is covered by more than 100,000 books that have been banned at various stages throughout history. Created by Argentine artist Marta Minujín, the exhibit is meant to spark debate over censorship in literature. Once the exhibition is over, these books will be handed out to allow the banned to enter literary circulation once more.
