Higashiura Town Central Library in Aichi Prefecture is working with local residents to build mini libraries in the town so that residents have more opportunities to read books. Through it, the effort aims to nurture a stronger community.

Known as the Guruguru Toshokan (Library on the Move) project, books will be stocked by willing participants in various locations, such as stores, offices, old houses and grape farms. The books will be those owned by the volunteers as well as volumes that the library lacks space for.
