OUR STORY & APPROACH.
Amplify Library is a series of book sharing boxes dedicated to promoting works by Black authors and those that contribute to anti-racist conversations. We aim to center and celebrate marginalized voices with the hope that these resources spark meaningful discourse and actions to fight systemic racism.
With the closure of community spaces due to COVID-19 and a surge of anti-racist reading lists, we recognized the need for safe, accessible spaces where communities could educate themselves. While we believe anti-racist reading lists mean well, we strive for our libraries to celebrate books by Black authors about a variety of topics - not just diversity and racial justice. On top of that, we aim to have our shelves filled with Black authors from a range of backgrounds - because all Black lives matter. To ensure that our libraries remain inclusive and engaging to the communities they're in, we collaborate with like-minded, local organizations and collectives to curate their shelves.
