Symposium on the Future of Libraries
Edwin Lindo will discuss Estelita’s Library, a new justice focused community bookstore and library in Seattle's Beacon Hill neighborhood. The library's collection includes a wide range of books about matters of social justice, race, class, politics, and the history of oppressed peoples in a space that inspires conversation and discovery. Estelita’s Library uses a library app to organize and manage its titles and a sliding scale membership fee for community access. The money raised from memberships and the library’s other operations will go toward one of Lindo’s projects: archiving, digitizing, and publicizing issues of the historic Black Panther Party newspapers.
