Trust Library is a 21st Century version of the Carnegie library (but 000's of them all over the place for free) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnegie_library ?
We have proven how giving free books has such a positive effect on a community at http://www.MUSTart.org and would love to work with you to create TRUST Libraries everywhere. Can we work with you to provide free access to reading for all? After successfully giving free books away at the British Library we are hoping we can give free books away where you are. Do you want any free books or want to give free books away?
We have teamed up with a UK Charity and are looking to partner with individuals and organisations that want to collaborate so that we can give as many free books away to the public. The aim is to give free books away and see how many great people are interested in helping others by doing anything from running oneof the 50+ free Trust Libraries to distributing books or putting on a talk, performance or importantly helping hand out free books on the street. If you can help please list your contact details and what you can do in the comments part below this text (after logging in) or Tweet a message to @Trustlibrary
What are we looking for?
Message to Recycling organisations, Charitable orgs and Volunteering teams. Can we work with you to save books (and REUSE any other items that get recycled) from being pulped by purchasing/donating them and getting them from recycling companies & charity shops to local empty shops to give them away in TRUST Libraries so we can benefit local communities. Would it be possible to trial this with your organisation? We have funds to pay for the books (ideally looking for donations) and your teams can benefit your local community be creating your own Trust Library which will act as a great positive promotion for your organisation for free. If you process books your sorting process will be unchanged but the books are just stamped with a self inking book stamp we provide (saying 'free book take, read then give away' and then delivered to a location that you choose (using existing transport so no extra cost).
Interested in Volunteering?
We are looking for volunteers for these areas of work. If you are interested please comment here on this Volunteers page with contact details.
-Develop the social media and website.
-Volunteer managers to run individual shops across the country.
-People who can supply recycled/unwanted books (other items) to give away. (Ideally suppliers who can supply items AND deliver to a local/national shop)

TRUST Library has won an award from http://www.unltd.org.uk and are looking for other partners to collaborate with on helping others using recycled items.
We have partnered with http://www.HealthyPlanet.org to raise awareness of Reusing, Reducing and Recycling resources.
1. Want a FREE book to read, review then give away? Donate to TRUSTlibrary.org (so we can recycle books from Charity Shops to give away for free to others) and we will give you free books. Join us in the Gift economy where everyone wins.
2. Have you ever seen a few books left for anyone to take in a bar or waiting room? Share the location on our map so that everyone can use that Trust Library. Search for your local Trust Library here and make your own.
3. Help hundreds of people in minutes by getting the DIY Trust Library pack and volunteering or building your own.
4. Enhance any building by requesting we install a FREE Trust Library. Every School, Hospital, Hall and Shop could have one. If you want a Trust Library in your community ask us to send your community leader free books by donating. Lets work together to create, record and share where to find free books so that anyone can FIND the Trust Libraries and then give and get FREE books.
Also review any books you find at Trust Libraries so others know which books to read/ignore. Ask us to set up a FREE Book sharing Trust Library or donate and get a book sent to a friend of your choice. Take, read then review your book at TRUSTlibrary.org and importantly give it away. (Do tell Us if you enjoyed the book & donate online:). It is also important to record where the Trust Libraries are so that it is harder of them to be unintentionally disposed of by unaware individuals so we have created signs to label them.
