Let’s free knowledge! One book at a time.
Remember those cartons full of books you have lying in the garage and cupboards? Imagine if you could trade every book you own for books that you’ve always wanted to read. We at Barter.li are motivated by a desire to bring millions of books which otherwise just adorn bookshelves, back into circulation. We want to create a sense of community, promote literacy and the love of reading by creating a free book exchange which is for the people and by the people.
What we have built already
We have built an android app which you can find here - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=li.barter
barter.li is a not-for-profit effort in a hope to make it a thriving community on the same lines as a Wikipedia or couchsurfing community. Here people can share and exchange their physical books with others in their community.
What we will use the money for
Our main idea is to spread the word about barter.li and we are collecting contributions to cover the ongoing server costs.
