Mobile Library Partnerships

Take a look at some of the pop-ups the mobile social justice library has offered to justice-driven organizations and causes in Rhode Island and Southeastern Connecticut. Let's work together to set up at your community education event, protest, or gathering to advocate for social justice.

We typically need at least a month to prepare for set up. Then we put out a call for book donations related to your event's topic(s), assemble some volunteers, and process, catalog, and prepare the books for circulation. This project is free to request and supported by our business sales.

Wakefield, RI -- Nov 2022

We partnered with a number of organizations, including Planned Parenthood, The Womxn Project, Haus of Codec, Youth Pride, and LGBTQ Action Rhode Island to sponsor and uplift PRISM's Trans Day of Joy Rally. The Rally was a loving and supportive response to attacks on the trans community by hostile groups like Moms for Liberty who had been meeting at the state's public libraries in weeks prior.

PVDFest at Providence, RI -- June 2022

Toward an Anti-Racist North Kingstown (TANK) invited the mobile library to set up in the heart of PVDFest to collaborate on offering banned and frequently challenged books to passerby as part of programming related to Teach the Truth Day, a national initiative organized by the Howard Zinn Education Project.

North Kingstown High School -- April 2022

Several organizations in Southern Rhode Island came together to celebrate diversity in children's and young adult literature during an all-day event featuring author talks, justice-driven organizations around the state, and resistance against book bans and challenges. The mobile library circulated books and we got acquainted with awesome orgs like Youth Pride, the Tomaquag Museum, and Thundermist Health Center.

Protests Against Racial Injustice

Downtown Westerly, RI 

We partnered with Westerly Anti-Racism Coalition (ARC) since our launch in February 2021 to offer books about racial and social justice on a regular basis up until September 2022. ARC founding members Leslie S. Dunn and Kevin J. Lowther, II have gone on to be elected as Westerly's first Black School Committee and Town Council members respectively.
