A group of islanders from Kimolos, situated in the southwest of the Greek island group the Cyclades, have installed free lending libraries at all the main beaches of the island to make tourists’ stays even more enjoyable.


The small libraries, made in the shape of dories, and painted in hues of blue and white, will be lending books printed in Greek, English and other languages.


Amazingly constructed by the painter Eleni Technopoulou, the libraries have four different designs, containing messages promoting the reduction of disposable plastic and the protection of the seas.

The project was realized by a grant from the A C Laskaridis Charitable Foundation under the “Sea Change Greek Islands” program, that aims to protect the marine environment and reduce disposable plastic.


The volcanic island is a tiny jewel with a rich history, beautiful landscapes, and sandy beaches.


According to an ancient tradition, the island was named after Kimolos, the very first resident. Echinousa is another recorded name of the island during ancient times, possibly because of the Echidna snakes (vipers), that are common even today on the island.
