Carrying more than 5,000 books and measuring more than 430 feet long, the Logos Hope is the world's largest floating bookstores. The Logos Hope is operated by a German charity organization, and its mission is to take books, education, and community outreach around the world.
The Logos Hope has visited more than 42 countries in its 8 years of service, and usually stays in a port for several weeks, which allows the volunteer crew to take on community projects and bring on board as many visitors as possible. Part of the ship's mission is to make low-cost books available in parts of the world where books are hard to come by - this includes not only selling books below retail prices, but also establishing libraries in local schools, children’s homes, and other community organization wherever the Logos Hope sails.
