Batteries and sunshine

Urban Librarians Unite has been growing in leaps and bounds over the last year. We have more programs, more input, more advocacy, and more trainings than we have ever had before. It’s been electrifying.

Highlights of what we are doing

  • Four Mini Libraries out in communities in Queens and Brooklyn. We estimate that we have distributed about 8,000 books through these tiny little library outposts.
  • Urban Librarians Conference. We are currently planning our THIRD conference dedicated to the needs and interests of working librarians in urban areas
  • Consultations – We are working as part of a team of architects scholars and designers to reenvision NYC branch libraries as part of a design study organized by the Architectural League of New York

As we have grown so have our expenses. We now have an office, a storage space, and an accountant to pay. None of our staff collect a salary from ULU and all of your tax deductible donated dollars go directly to keeping the org running and our programs expanding.

We have set a big fundraising goal to power ourselves up. We need to hit $5,000 before September 29th.
