Quaker Mobile Library Service to London Homeless

Adrian Smith sent over This Guardian Article on the Quaker Homeless Action (QHA) mobile library. Their aim is simple: that its borrowers be regarded as equal members of the reading public.

For five years, the van, stocked with a selection of 4,000 books and staffed by volunteers, has headed out twice weekly to five homelessness day centres in London, lending books and taking reader requests. Readers need only a name to sign up to use it.
