I agree that tradeoff is misleading as well. The public bookshelves I know
of don't require any kind of trade off, you are free to leave books or take
books or do both completely to your liking.

The wikipedia article about "public bookcase" seems to be a translation of
the German language article, I'd like to hear some opinion from English
native speakers whether that term seems appropriate.
