Reading Club 2000Free: All time

Reading Club 2000 is an informal library set up by Hernando Guanlao outside his ancestral home in central Manila, Philippines. Hernando Guanlao, known by his nickname Nanie, wanted to encourage his local community to share his joy of reading. At Nanie’s Reading Club, there is no membership, borrower’s card or ID required. One may keep the books or return them. The library is not advertised, but somehow, every day, a steady stream of people find their way there.
