Lighthouses are beacons of light, which by their activity and prominence serve to illuminate their surroundings. There are individuals in our society who are beacons too, who have achieved distinction in lands beyond our Rock, where they continue to serve as sources of inspiration and motivation for our community.

Dr Eva Carneiro is a Sports Physician who has worked in the New South Wales Institute of Sport in Sydney, Olympic Medical Institute UK and Chelsea Football Club. She is a contributing member of the UEFA Injury Study Group, works as Consultant in Qatar in the build up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup and in The Sports Medical Group, at 68 Harley Street London.

Book Crossing 2017

At John Mackintosh Square

 Time - 10am - 2pm

History of Book-Crossing

Book-Crossing is defined as "the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise.  The concept began in order to encourage the aim to "make the whole world a library."  The idea was originally conceived in 2001 and has expanded and grown throughout the world.

The initiative has developed so that books are "set free" into public places or hotspots where others will “catch” them. Books may be left at “Official Book-Crossing Zones" (OBCZs) which can be located in coffee shopscafes,restaurants and other public places. The purpose of these locations is to get members in the area to leave books to share with the public.

Many unofficial conventions or "unconventions" take place at other locations and times throughout the year, this makes it easier for Book-Crossers who cannot travel internationally to the convention to gather and share their love of books.

Book-Crossing introduces readers to authors and genres that they may not have read before.  It also encourages more people to take up or reclaim reading as a hobby.

Local Event

At our Local Event, members of the public will be able to bring and to take books that others have “released”.  Gibraltar Cultural Services' staff will be available at the venue for any questions that people may have or to discuss the idea in general.

Children are also encouraged to exchange books, but they must be accompanied by an adult.
