So, what is the CPL BookBox? It is the next step in the evolution of the ShopBox, a portable and malleable retail concept conceived by Cristian Schmitt, an architect from Santiago, Chile who spent six months in Cleveland developing the concept. A ShopBox hosts temporary commercial or recreational activities in public locations. Its size and modular structure allows for various uses and easy transportation. The CPL BookBox’s design makes it easily recognizable and inviting to passers-by, who can use it to check out a variety of books, including those on favorite Market District topics such as food, cooking, gardening, art, and urban agriculture. The CPL BookBox boasts the convenience of a great location with the same usability as a bricks and mortar library.
