VISION: The Audre Lorde to Howard Zinn Library was formed by Metacomet Books, the Boston Radical Reference Collective and the Progressive Librarians Guild of Simmons College to meet the information needs of the participants and visitors at Occupy Boston. Its caretakers understand that librarianship isn’t a neutral profession and that the choices we make in collection development, responding to research queries, collection of archival materials and programming all have social ramifications. We aim to unfold librarianship, as it has always been intended -- a powerful tool for social justice.

MISSION: The Audre Lorde to Howard Zinn Library aims to foster inquiry, learning, critical analysis and information-sharing among Occupy Boston occupiers, participants and visitors in order to better understand, challenge and transform interlocking systems of oppression.

COLLECTION: Our collection contains books, magazines, newspapers, ‘zines, pamphlets and other materials that have been donated, collected, and archived during the occupation.

''Due to the eviction of the occupation at Dewey Sq. our collection is no longer in a centralized location. The A-Z Library welcomes suggestions for space. Please email library@lists.occupyboston.org
