To choose locations and offer pop-up reading rooms where they are wanted and needed most, we partner with community groups and institutions all over the city. Our host partners are BIDs, development corporations, civic associations, community centers, farmers’ market organizations, libraries, schools, and museums. Other partners are nonprofits focused on literacy, books, plazas, services for youth, and librarians.

Transportation Alternatives has connected us with community organizations managing play streets. Neighborhood Plaza Partnership has connected us with community organizations managing new plazas in historically underserved neighborhoods. Museums, libraries, bookstores and nonprofits help us build our collection by donating or lending materials, expanding what we are able to offer on-site.
