I used to lend my graphic novels through the hats&books library but they moved to the Pavillion and they have now the books on open shelves. And I am so, so, so, so... tired of 'losing' things
through different groups!!
So, I thought I could stay at the cafe next to my books collection and lend them for people to read there and then. In exchange, for my security they would have to leave with me a good identification and a valuable item during the loan (!). It sounds harsh but these books are expensive and you cannot get them at the library (the ones I have); they could develop wings...
Now, next thing is how and where to leave them. Our space is tiny. I checked and, as things stand I could put this old suitcase that I bought under one of our small tables, or just standing against the wall behind the armchair or so. What do you think? It is very possible that nobody wants to bother with such thing for just a bit of reading. But it could work out as well. Maybe I could just try for a month and see how it goes???
