Street Books in Portland

August 16, 2011

Since June, Laura Moulton has been the librarian for Street Books, “a bicycle-powered mobile library, serving people who live outside.” Two days a week, the writer and mother of two distributes books to her patrons, who are not able to get library cards from city libraries since they don’t have a permanent address. While grant funding from the Regional Arts and Culture Council will end in August, Ms. Moulton intends to continue the project. You can learn more about her inspiring initiative here and here
