Fundraiser on 4/13/2019!

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

The Annual New Orleans Books Fair is Saturday, December 8th, 2018!

The Book Fair is at Gasa Gasa this year! The address is 4920 Freret Street, New Orleans, LA. Hours are 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. We will be there unloading some of the many hardbacks that we can’t send to prisons. Take them off our hands! Sliding scale donations accepted. It’s a really good selection this year– we already got rid of all the books that looked boring.

We also have brand new t-shirts designed by Hugo Girl and printed by us! They look great.

Come check out the independent writers, printers, and publishers and also come say hi to us! There will be books, magazines, letterpress stuff, posters, and probably food.
