For me, summer evokes images of laying in the sun while reading a good book, which is exactly what the Beach Library is all about.

Designed by Matali Crasset, the Beach Library is a concept design in Istres, France which is made up of a steel structure with three mini shading areas for readers to relax and enjoy their favorite novel. Although the library may look small, it offers 300 titles to choose from. What I love most about the Beach Library is how vibrant and fun it looks - bathed in orange, blue and red - considering how most libraries are usually a drab grey.

Even if you're not lucky enough to experience this incredible library by the water, you can bring your own book to the beach this summer and read away. Stats for Pop-Up Seaside Libraries Trending: Older & Chilly
