With its intuitive “find, share, and connect” functionality, www.myBookSquare.com helps users find the books they want to read in their own neighborhood. The web site invites users to build virtual bookshelves as a way to showcase their book collection to others in their neighborhood. When a user adds a book to their bookshelf, they can choose to make their book available for borrowing, renting, and/or sale to others. Book Square respects privacy, so a user’s address is shown to another user only when they have accepted a request and Book Square has verified their identity.
Book Square is a unique service for local neighborhoods where book lovers connect with each other, while supporting local communities. When book owners donate proceeds from their book exchanges to support community causes, such as local schools, Book Square matches another 20% to show its commitment to supporting local communities.
