Library of Abandoned Books

by duncanr

a bunch of binmen in Turkey began rescuing books thrown out amongst the garbage to read themselves

before long, they had a little collection that they shared amongst themselves and their families

as the saying goes – ‘from little acorns mighty oaks grow‘ . . .

they now have amassed a collection of 6,000+ ‘reclaimed’ books and have opened a library to make these available for the general public to borrow, and have lent books to ‘local schools, educational programs, and even a few prisons’

  1. a bunch?

    considering: a gaggle of geese, a squabble of seagulls, a rafter of turkeys, a conspiracy of ravens, a parliament of owls, a murder of crows, ….

    obviously, a library of binmen.
