If you want to create your own OR help encourage more people to make their own Trust Library do contact organisations such as the ones on this list...
http://www.communityrepaint.org.uk/Useful_Lin ... s.php using the advice on http://www.TRUStlibrary.org
Please contact & ask if they want Trust Libraries to look up http://www.TRUStlibrary.org and if they can provide volunteers to raise awareness about recycling or if we can partner with them. Ask them to comment directly on Trustlibrary.org and the facebook page.
Also add each one of them as 'like' on facebook and comment on their facebook pages so anyone can see our work (post saying ' Can http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org work with you? https://http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=348867089849 http://twitter.com/TRUSTlibrary ')
I am an artist currently doing an Ma. My work is concerned with regenerating or making use of empty or wasted spaces, environments and materials while involving the local communities in the process through workshops and events.
I would like to find a shop where I can put on an exhibition by making work during a series of workshops with local communities within the space. Culminating in a final exhibition from the community for the community.
The work would be made from recycled or found material from the local area e.g. cardboard, newspaper. And the theme would be decided by the participants in the first workshop.
a fun activity for local communities using waste materials
I have a CRB check from last year
public liability insurance upto £5 mill
access to a space with electricity
any help anyone can offer
I went to this great event, last weekend, Saturday the 10th April, called Young Advisor Development Day: Getting your stories into the media! Although it was for the age group 13-19, I found it very educational. We spent the day looking at how to write for different media, publicity and marketing.
The event was started by a guest speaker from the BBC.
We looked at how to use a voice recorder, how to modulate the voice so that it sounds good and clear. We were also told how to address the camera and how to present ourselves in front of it.
Lunch was pizza (yummy!) and drinks.
After lunch we had a journalist from the BBC telling us, how to make news catchy enough to draw attention. Articles will get published which will be interesting for people to read and talk about.
About the press and who reads the paper, I found this quite interesting. The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country, The Guardian by people who think they ought to run the country, The Times by people who actually run the country, The Daily Mail by wives of people who run the country, The Financial Times by people who own the country, The Morning Star by people who think the country ought to be run by another country, The Daily Telegraph by people who think it is and The Sun who don't care who run the country.
Whatever your target audience, people's attention span is short, so catch them with your headline, summarise with your opening line and just get to the point.
I met a lot of new people, worked in a team and learnt a lot of new things. All in all I found this was a great event to be at.

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).
It would be great to trial this so you can benefit a local good cause by giving them free books?
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.

-Logistics to deliver the goods to the shops.
-More empty locations to create free trust libraries.

Here is a list of guidance for setting up Trust Libraries. The aim is for anyone to set up a library anywhere so it is all about collaborating to help others (so hopefully we are being helpful to you:)...
Do not feel overwhelmed please. I find the best thing to do is take on one part at a time and complete that.
Please state which town you are in, your contact details and what you can give and what you need there. The locations we have access to are listed on the http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org site. If you can not find your town please list your details anyway (and look for an unused space in which to create a Trust Library near you then set one up using the guidance sheet at http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org)
Please comment on facebook WITHOUT using the private messages (by commenting on walls) so that anyone else can add to your hard work by commenting on it:) When commenting please put this information in your comment so that anyone can find more details easily...
http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org give away FREE Books with you in 50+ uk locations? We need volunteers to manage each shop across the UK and waterproof boxes/shelves & transport to deliver & store the books (please post any ideas/suggestions on the website and join the group https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=348867089849 )
Please join http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org & the Facebook group and comment about setting up your local Trust Library so we can set you up a personal http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org page to manage and share your success. To find other volunteers to help do then comment on local volunteering charities facebook groups saying that "we are looking for volunteers to Manage shops where we are giving free books away http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org" Add more information as you see fit.
Then you can find volunteers to work with you to set up the locations that we are going to have a library. The best way to do this is to call up volunteering charities and asking if they have regional representatives.
Then call up each charity shop in the town that we are going to open up a http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org shop in and ask to speak to the manager then ask them...
1. Say that we are a charitable project working with two recycling charities and would like to offer them a free high street shop in which to raise awareness and give free books away in. Explain that this is to raise literacy levels and draw communities together while raising awareness about recycling.
2. Ask if we can take books that they recycle off their hands for free (tell them that we are raising literacy levels and ask them to register on TRUSTlibrary.org for more details) in order to benefit the local youth and community.
If they are not able to donate the books then ask if we can buy the books off them at the same cost that they get when they recycle them.
3. Ask if they can deliver the books direct to the high street shop in their town. Also ask if they would like to get one of their volunteers to open up our shop and use it to raise awareness about their charitable cause while also giving books away. This is the big sell as we are GIVING them rent free access to a shop:)
4. Ask if they know of any other locations that we could install a TRUST Library that gives books away to the local community in order to encourage everyone to read more? (put any contacts [url/twitter] they give you on the 'New Locations' page at http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org )
If/When they agree to give us books and/or volunteers get their contact details and put them on the http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org page for that town AND on the Volunteers page.
Feel free to develop this line of questioning as you see fit.
Opening up your shop.
Print of the posters that are attached to the http://www.TRUSTlibrary.org homepage. Get books from the local community and set up the library with signs says FREE BOOKS. I suggest putting the posters in the windows and working from in the shop (if you have a laptop and wireless connection?) on Saturday and Sunday. Do take pictures and video on your phone and then upload online to youtube to show your great work.
As you are a pioneer opening up our showcase shops it would be great if you could add information to this guidance below so the next person who opens a shop has the benefit of your experience from opening up your shop.
