The People’s Library

Request Program

The People’s Library is a highly collaborative, sustainable and interactive public art project. We work with communities to make handmade paper from discarded books, invasive plants, and countless other recycled materials. These sheets of handmade paper are then sewn together to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind books. Participants then fill their books with writing, photographs, family histories and much more.

Workshop participants will learn a variety of sustainable art forms, while working together to create unique, collaborative, and generative archives that make room for all of our diverse histories
