The Academy of Modern Ruins is repurposing this abandoned gas station on Route 66 as The Philosopher’s Library. Visitors to the website are invited to submit a book that’s changed their life.
From The Academy of Modern Ruins website:
"Located in the Mojave desert, The Philosopher’s Library will be a remote sanctuary filled with books about leading an examined life, as well as a card catalogue where travelers can share their philosophies for personal well-being.
Initial preparations for the library are underway. Share the books that changed your life below and we’ll include them in our catalogue. Your description will be printed on a handsome book plate inside the book you’ve recommended."
