Don’t worry, we’re still sending out books! But we are closed indefinitely, which means we can’t host volunteer nights or accept used book donations at this time. It also means we don’t know when we will reopen. We take the health and safety of our collective and our volunteers very seriously, so we will be closed until we feel it’s safe. Thank you all for your support! We will update when the situation changes and we are able to resume normal operations.
We have too many books and not enough money! We’re getting rid of some books and trying to raise postage funds. We’ve been saving up really good books all year long for this. The books will be available on a donation basis. Suggested donation: $1-3 a book, or fill up a bag for $30. We’ll also have LAB2P tote bags, patches, and pins available.
We’ll be in the garage at our regular workspace in the 7th Ward: 2523 George Nick Connor Dr., New Orleans, LA 70119.
All are welcome to stick around afterwards for our regular worknight— come and learn about our work and help send incarcerated people some books they’ll enjoy!
We’ll be back next week.
We’ll be back next week!
We’re having a fundraiser to raise money for postage and educational books. ! We have been saving up really good books all year that we thought the public might want. Many of them are hardbacks or have banned content that prisons won’t allow inside. We’re having a donation-based book sale– take as many books as you want and make a donation to our nonprofit! We will also have shirts and bags with our new logo on them.
WHAT: LAB2P Fundraiser
WHEN: Sunday, April 14, from 12 – 4 p.m.
WHERE: Our normal space, 2523 George Nick Connor Dr., New Orleans LA 70119
