From Landfill to Library
One person's trash is another person's treasure



What do you with old , shabby books?

Donate them? Throw them away?

Many books are discarded daily around the world.

But some sanitation workers refuse to let this valuable resource go to waste.

Instead they are giving these books a second home and providing access to books to those who can't afford them.

Turkey

Garbage collectors in Ankara were thrown out as rubbish.

So in 2017, they decided to salvage them.

At first the books were only available to other city workers and their families.

But as the number of books grew, so did the number of users -- and contributors!

Today, the collection has over 6000 books, including both fiction and nonfiction.

It's housed in an old, vacant brick factory.

The library loans out books to community members as well as nearby schools and prisons.

The success of their efforts has inspired the whole community.

As for the sanitation workers, their next plan is to turn a garbage truck into a library on wheels.
