The lending library at In Other Words is a free resource that allows folks to access radical books and zines, and enables us to further our mission of supporting, enriching, and empower feminist communities through literature, art, and educational and cultural events.

In times of economic hardship, free libraries are crucial institutions to ensuring access to knowledge, and a feminist lending library is even more of an asset because it ensures that those materials include work from and for underrepresented and marginalized groups.

Some of these books we obtained in an effort to replace books that were checked out and never returned.  Please demonstrate your love and respect for our feminist communities by returning the lending library materials back to In Other Words after you had a chance to enjoy them.
