Support “Green Reads,” a Program That Finances Libraries by Distributing Used Books in Eco-Friendly Vending Machines

green readsby , Open Culture:

Green Reads has launched a crowd funding campaign on IndieGogo to build 15 eco-friendly, used book vending machines.

Invented by Dana Clarke, the machines require no electricity and they’ll allow libraries, charities, and book retailers a way to sell used books and create a sustainable source of revenue.

Green Reads is looking to raise $75,000 ($5000 per machine) by May 19.

Once operational, the machines will be donated (not sold) to libraries and charities.

You can get a lot more information and contribute to this worthy campaign right here.
