Garbage collectors in Turkey are recycling books. They started a mobile library. It has over 9,000 books. There are books on politics, romance, history, literature and economics. The library is in a truck. It tours schools in Ankara. The library wants to make children passionate about paper books.

More people know about the library. They want it to grow. The library said: "Each day we have guests coming here to borrow books." It has books for younger and older children. Turkey has one public library for every 70,000 people; the European Union has one public library for every 6,200 people.
