How does our project achieve its goal?

Reaching a higher level of consciousness, throughout reading materials shared between members of society.

Bookla is a platform that is about making a shared library of books for the people
in cities over the globe;

So, If you live in Berlin, you can look for books let's say in chinese, and what you
can do is that you can search the library, find the book you are looking for, then borrow it from the owner, or reclaim it.

As a book owner, you borrow, or give away books in your language. Be it…


What will volunteers be doing?

- Marketing
- Design (UI/UX)
- Programming (Frontend/Mobile)
- Programming (Backend) - Python, PHP, Node.Js over TypeScript

All experience levels are welcome!
