Bibliotecha is a framework to facilitate the local distribution of digital publications within a small community. It relies on a microcomputer running open-source software to serve books over a local wifi hotspot. Using the browser to connect to the library one can retrieve or donate texts. Bibliotecha proposes an alternative model of distribution of digital texts that allows specific communities to form and share their own collections.
Within a two-day long open work session we aim to further develop Bibliotecha in its design, concept and public accessibility. We invite interested parties to join us in thinking and developing what Bibliotecha currently is and can it can become in the future.
