A group of volunteers came together in Bodrum and turned an abandoned, ruined house into a library where children can spend quality time.

The campaign started by the volunteers grew with the support of Nejat İşler. As a result of the campaign, which also spread to social media, more than 4,000 stories and children’s books were collected.
The walls of the library were painted by the artist Mine Asşan, and the floor tiles were placed by the locals in a collaborative manner.
The library was named after 10-year-old Ada Uz, who died in a traffic accident. Surplus books donated to the library will be sent to children in cities whose schools and libraries have been destroyed.
Feridun Yıldız, one of the campaign managers, made the following statement to dihaber:
‘Other artists, especially our artist Nejat İşler, who lives in Bodrum, contributed to the growth of the campaign. In a short time, we collected more than 4 thousand books. We will send some of the books collected in our library to our children in cities such as Diyarbakır and Mardin whose schools and libraries have been destroyed.
The aid will not be limited to books, but we will also deliver stationery and school supplies to children in Kurdish provinces.’
