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

List your name & what you can 1. GIVE 2. WANT 3. Email Contact 4. Your Donation 5. Suggestions

EG I would put this...Ed Whyman

Please list the location of the Trust Library you are looking to make on the website and when it is made please take pictures and video's and link to it from the relevant Town page. (If no town page exists ask for one by commenting on the http://www.webjam.com/TRUSTlibrary/volunteers page.)

As a volunteer you can get feedback on what you are doing on Facebook and Twitter by joining this group https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=348867089849 and follow http://twitter.com/TRUSTlibrary or use this #WEBiversity

Build your Library

Find a location and stick up the posters and signs there and around town so that others know where to go to find 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

Get books

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.

Future Development

We are looking for Train Stations, Tube Stations, Airports, Ports, Libraries, Hostel, Hotel, Charity Shops where we can give free books away with you. We are also looking at the best way to distribute the free books using existing transport infrastructure so that we can add value to your services. Do you have a Bus, Lorry, Train, Plane that has spare space that we can use to install a FREE Trust Library in your area?
