Libros Schmibros champions the pleasures of literature and its power to change lives.

What we do

 

We’re a lending library that puts low-or no-cost books into all hands, native and immigrant, Eastside and West. From street-level booklending to humanities advocacy and partnerships at the highest levels, Libros Schmibros champions the pleasures of literature and its power to change lives. Since our opening in 2010, we’ve put over 20,000 books in circulation in Boyle Heights and beyond.
