This fundraising campaign is to get Book 28 Library functioning as a publicly accessible lending library.  We aim to be transparent about how we're meeting our goals and what we're doing.  In that spirit here is a concise list of what money raised through the Launch Our Library campaign will be  used for:

  • We want to grow our collection to 350-500 relevant books 
  • We need materials to cover and catalogue those books
  • We need funds for ongoing library operations such as cataloguing software
  • We want to pay our collaborators when they work with us on events
  • We need money to create projects that will make our operations sustainable, such as monthly workshops, talks, and merchandise

All of our financial transactions will be made public our website.
