#SheReads Library





Because of my deep love for books… I’ve been around

the world and back, and I have never

left my seat… -Kay Davis (writer, poet, community activist)

The Buttafly Center has established the #SheReads

Lending Library as a way to develop and

cultivate the progress of women. .


Mobile Libraries, Cultivating a Community. So, where will the collection be housed? The agency has decided to

take a unique approach to providing a library for the community. They have created an “online mobile library”

that will allow women to check out free books online and have their books delivered to them on special “mobile

days.” The library will also have established “book stations” where their collection will be accessible via host

community agencies. Tarsha Semakula, the agency's executive director, states...We are looking to partner with

local agencies to house our mobile collection on selected dates. We like the idea of delivering the books to the

women who use our library, as this gives us an opportunity to share the books with the women via our book drop visits.
