TRUSTlibrary.org Setup Guidance
Thanks for looking into how to make your own FREE Trust Library. The aim is to help others get free books and then give them away so that we can all easily help each other have a nicer day! The key is to make the Library easy to spot using the most accessibly location while making the library look as stylish as possible using the resources you have. For starters we have created the website with documents to download to make it as easy as possible for you to improve your neighbourhood by creating a trust library. The best part is that you can make it however you want and show others what you made here. So to help you here are some pointers (essentially put books in boxes with posters and list the location on TRUSTlibrary.org)...
List yourself on the Volunteers page and then to chat with other volunteers to get the latest advice. http://www.webjam.com/TRUSTlibrary/volunteers

EG I would put this...Ed Whyman
1. I want to volunteer and will promote this site on Facebook/Twitter
2. I want to make exciting collaborative artworks using recycled material.
4. I have subscribed to donate £9 a month and have set up a trust library using my unwanted books.
5. Add other things you want:)
6. I also can provide art to display in the shops. examples at at http://www.whymandesign.com

Build your Library

Use recycled material such as cardboard boxes and modify/improve them by sticking posters on or painting them. Then put as many unwanted books as you can collect (after stamping them with the stamp
Use the people you already know to get books. Friends/family/collogues are the best contacts. At least one should know someone who is getting rid of books. If that is not successful then either call or walk in to your local charity shops and ask them if you can take any books that they can not sell away in exchange for a donation (You can get a lot of books for under £10 and if you can not afford that contact us and we can help). http://www.charityshops.org.uk or similar sites will give you the contact details for your local charity shops.

Also can you help http://www.webiversity.org share FREE educational
video for all AND create a collaboration microfinance platform?
Here are some points I email to everyone to help (though you probably
already have heard of this:).
Empowering everyone to help everyone can be more valuable than money and
can be done cheeply/free by sharing or giving free items
(software/books) away. http://www.WEBiversity.org and
http://www.MUSTart.org are examples
http://www.Traidmark.org is one example of how any funds can be spent
more efficiently by creating institutional innovation. This can be used
by anyone no matter how much money they have (especially as they use the
funds to spend them in the most creative way they can come up with so
they may not actually need any funds to create something good).
http://www.FREEtraid.com is one example.
One great way to solve problems is to ask the person asking the question
(problem finder) if they know of the answer or if they can look into
solving it so they become the problem solver too:)
How can enterprise and innovation be improved and created
institutionally? http://www.Traidmark.org is one way to create
How else can everyone be A. Empowered to create innovative solutions so
social problems and B. Self sustain themselves by earning enough to live
TRUSTlibrary.org has been granted an unltd.org.uk award after being created by http://www.MUSTart.org and we are now looking to collaborate with other organisations to find locations to install FREE Trust Libraries so that anyone can take a Free book, read it then pass the book on to someone else (and then if they liked the experience help create the experience for others by donating more books to the Library and donating funds online so we can set up more FREE Trust Libraries).
Do you know of a location that would benefit from having Free books? Maybe a NHS Hospital, Doctors Surgery, Library, Town Hall, Community Centre, Religious Centre, Waiting Room... If so post a comment at http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org
Have you already created a Trust Library? Share it with others at http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org so more people can enjoy it.
Do you have unwanted books (or other items) that we can use to help others? Tell us about it at http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org and either create your own Trust Library or ask for help.
Do you know someone who would be pleasantly supprised if they were sent a free book through the post? Send them a book at http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org
Please Tweet this message so that anyone can 1. download free MUSTart.org and 2. create a FREE Trust Library.
Was £9.99, now FREE
Please take this free book, read then review it at TRUSTlibrary.org and then give it to a stranger! (Do tell Us if you enjoyed the book & donate online:).

If so contact @whymandesign.We have been hard at work with a national charity who have 50 empty uk shops we are using to create TRUSTlibrary.org in and putting free artworks in the windows with MUSTart.org. artwork examples are http://www.gilbertywhyman.com
B. Raising funds for charity in empty space... http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=348867089849 Would it be possible to save you money while your property is empty by using it for charity activities (that save you having to pay rates on the empty building?). If you know someone who does tweet @whymandesign. Can we help you save money by creating a charity art gallery in your empty shops. You will save your self from having to pay 100% of the business rates by doing this and all we ask in return is for you to donate 50% or more of the savings to us so we can continue to recycle and give away unwanted books and make recycled art for the public.

If you are not happy with any ART or books in any way (please take pictures/videos of yourself giving them away and share on TRUSTlibrary.org and collect contact details for the people you gave them to) then we will be able to give you a replacement batch totally free. The books we supply are popular fact and fiction but we do also have a supply of childrens and youth books that we can supply to Schools/Hospitals. We also install artworks in public locations too. Contact us for details @TRUSTlibrary. Why not get a Trust Library installed in/outside your office, school, home, hospital, station or in an entrance foyet so that everyone can improve their day with a free book they can read then give away.
