Discover Some Good Books in ONSL

Day 22 of “45 Days in Old North”

Thanks to the initiative of Old North St. Louis resident Peter Swietlicki, the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group office is now a BookCrossing crossing zone. If you’re confused about the concept, the website offers the following definition:

n. the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise. (added to the Concise Oxford English Dictionary in August 2004)

So, if you enjoy books, stop by the ONSLRG office at 2800 N. 14th Street to see what’s in the bin - and if you find something you like, take it home and read it, then set it free for someone else to discover. And if you have a book that you’d like to share, register it at, and then drop it off at our crossing zone. As of this writing, the ONSLRG crossing zone has more books “recently released into the wild” than any of the other 70+ registered crossing zones in the St. Louis area.
