The Book Ark Project (TBAP)

We recruit builders and Book Ark Managers to design and maintain these permanent structures we call Book Arks to house free books throughout our communities. There are over 100 Book Arks in the Camden area alone. To make them easier to find, our Book Ark Manager Endrix created this comprehensive Google Map of all of our registered Arks!
