Update on programming

After a pause on programming due to COVID-19 restrictions, we started delivering a modified program to the women’s unit of Burnside jail in April 2021. Our programs had been suspended indefinitely since March 2020, which means folks have a strong need for library programs. We are excited to be working with people inside again!

Our drop-off locations are: Venus Envy (1598 Barrington St) and Alteregos (2193 Gottingen St). Please respect their COVID rules and support the local businesses that support us.
