Last week, Gram Games was lucky enough to help Onaranlar Kulübü, an organization right here in Istanbul, set up their communal street library! The organization is a voluntary community that aims to repair, produce, share, and enhance our environment and society by working on creative, innovative, and encouraging projects that are used and engaged with collectively.
When O.K. raised the idea of this project, the Gram team couldn’t have been more excited. They wanted to build a street library, right in Fenerbahce park, on the seaside. The idea was to share knowledge and literature – anyone can bring a book, leave it, and take another. Recycling, while learning together.
We started the project in March, finalized it in April, and helped build the final project in May. Now the library sits right on the sea side, in a beautiful green park, ready for anyone to use. We’re so proud to have participated in this project, and cannot wait to see how people benefit from the library.
This was Gram’s first collaboration with O.K., but we’re certain it won’t be the last. As a company that also cares deeply about people, and about sharing knowledge, experiences, ideas, and enjoyment with the community and the world, we can’t wait to see how we can further help the organization in the future.
