The Uni Project
The Uni Project is taking reading to the streets with pop-up reading rooms, placing 360-degree shelving units and benches in public spaces of all persuasions, including parks, farmers' markets, and city plazas. Right now the nonprofit is operating pop-ups around New York City, complete with high-quality books and knowledgeable staffers—you can follow their schedule to see where they'll appear next. Not in New York? Get the reading room kit delivered anywhere in the world. Places as far-flung as Washington State and Kazakhstan have gotten in on the party. Find out how you can donate books or start your own Uni reading room, because as Stephen King tells us, "Books are a uniquely portable magic."

If they join the Grants program (or are already a member) I'll donate my time to run their campaigns as I do for paying clients the world over.
I agree, Louisville would be a great place for a reading room! I think Berea would be an awesome place for one too, although, they don't have as many people as Louisville.
I was thinking the same thing. In the Plano area.
The web site has a link for Leslie Davol. It would be fun to get some teachers/librarians in the area together to do this.
