The Problem

Millions of books are thrown out each year, building up landfills and polluting the environment. At the same time, so many people do not have access to education or books. So, we want to start a free library!

Our Plan

This free library will work in the matter that people can donate used books (in proper condition, of course) that would have otherwise been thrown away. These free libraries will be set up across Long Island, New York (first, but it may spread if it goes well) for those who have no access to education and books. Bonuses may include YouTube audiobooks for these books. We have a sub-project for this project. It is called "Library Donations." Check it out in the links.
