I love libraries. This particular library however, is a pretty special one: the books are collected from people’s trash! When Durson Ipek, a sanitation worker in Turkey, found a pile of discarded books in the garbage, he started gathering them along with other books he found on the streets. Other garbage men joined him too and soon their collection started to grow when locals participated and donated more books.
According to TRT world, there are currently 4000 books and the library is now open to the public. They also plan to help children in need through books, and turn a garbage truck into a mobile library. How cool is that?! Check out the video below!
