Our Current Libraries:
One of our ongoing projects is to install Little Free Libraries throughout New York City, with a particular focus on NYCHA residences and book deserts. These libraries ensure that everyone has 24/7 access to books and allow people to donate their own books to share with neighbors.
When we initially fill up each library, we prioritize kids, middle-grade, and young adult books written by people of color. It’s important to amplify these voices—and it’s important for kids to see themselves in a story. We also prioritize books about anti-racism, Black liberation, and the abolition of police and prisons.
Some ways to help:
– Donate funds to help fund building, installing, and fixing libraries
– Donate books to help us keep these libraries filled to the brim
– Help keep libraries near you stocked (we can provide books!)
– Tell us where we should install more (email@example.com)
– Volunteer to help us build more libraries!
