Spreading our Wings

I just got some really brilliant news.
For years I have been puzzling about what to do with all the German books we are given. No-one in the Netherlands seems to be interested. I have taken some to the UK but the one person who finds homes for them there has been somewhat overwhelmed with the quantities.

This evening a German friend living in the Netherlands said that she had just called a friend who was thinking ot setting up something similar. So who knows, we may even have a branch of Borderline Books in Germany in the next few months.

I am also working on friends in Belgium to do the same....

Meanwhile, the project in Groningen has already donated several hundred books in the provinces of Groningen and Friesland and will gradually spread to more of the northern provinces. They are also working on a project whereby they will make and lend specially designed bookshelves. - Photos soon.

I'm working on a new web design and hope that will be online in the next few weeks - in the meantime the existing site has all the information - just looking a little raggedy after 5 years.

We have also joined UnLtdWorld to assist with networking in the UK.
Don't forget - Borderline Books is built to be a portable project. If you think it would fit in with something you are doing, get in touch and we can help you get things up and running.
