I suspect that "public bookcase" is an American term rather than an English one - I've certainly never heard it used outside the OSM tagging list (unlike "book exchange", which I suspect is what you're trying to describe here).

I have used the term adopted by Wikipedia: Wikipedia-16px.png public bookcase. --Zethradon (talk) 02:13, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
Never heard of it. Is this a quirky minority thing, or are they all over the place, just not in the UK? It makes me think it shouldn't have it's own top-level tag, like maybe it's a just a kind of "artwork". -- Harry Wood (talk) 02:20, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
There are thousands of them all around the world, see here for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Free_Library ; http://littlefreelibrary.org/ourmap/; https://openbookcase.org/ ; https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_öffentlicher_Bücherschränke. A proposal for the top-level-tag has been accepted. --ChristianSW (talk) 07:15, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
