Backyard library idea_in_a_nutshell

  1. 1. Backyard Library Using Books We Have Stored In Our Attics!Create & run a several local green libraries for neighbors, using books that we store in our attics.Most of us have atleast 100 books in our attics, which occupy space and in general useless, after wehave read them once.My idea is to create a web-based system that enables anybody to be a librarian and "open" up his booksto his neighbors. Neighbors can donate their books to the library and in turn get free membership.Membership can also be bought through subscription fees.We can create the worlds largest library under a common brand "backyardlibary" which helps re-use ofold books, generates employment for several handicapped people and more importantly cares for theenvironment by cutting down fewer trees to make books.1. Social CauseRe-use books that we have bought and create "librarian" opportunities for several handicapped people.All they need is an internet connection and a "warehouse" to manage books. Each library with about100 users can generate a revenue of approximately Rs. 5000/- per month for the librarian.2. Environment FriendlyThe library is local, usually within the walking distance (say within the apartment complex) of where theuser lives. And we would deal with books already bought, but not used by anyone. This reduces thenumber of trees cut down to make books and also reduces the vehicle pollution of driving up to thenearest library.3. Encourages reading habit at near-zero costsSharing books to create libraries not only generates employment for the handicapped or needy but alsoencourages all of us to read more books at negligible costs.Confidential.
