Kickstart the Street Books project

If you’re a Portland reader (or a reader anywhere who thinks people should have books to read) consider kicking a few bucks to the Street Books project.

Street Books is a free mobile (bicycle-powered) library for people who live outside.  It was started by Laura Moulton, a local artist, writer, teacher, and activist.  She used a RACC grant to get the show on the road (so to speak) and is now Kickstarting it so it can continue to grow past the term of the grant.  She’s had a huge amount of interest and popular support, probably because this is an awesome project that does something good in the world.

If literature, empathy, and community can’t save us, I don’t know what will.
