Read. Learn. Create.
We are the first women’s history lending library in the United States.
Small But Mighty
Our non profit provides a community space where men, women, and children can escape their hectic lives, where they can feel welcomed and inspired. We have combined a lending-library and a cozy living room. We have created a place where our “Guides” are like Cast Members from Disney World and the energy is positive and world-changing like at a Girl Scout meeting.
How You Can Help
We will accept any books about women or written by women. Our focus is on female written autobiographies, research papers, letters, cookbooks, and diaries from women around the world from any time period.
Become a Volunteer
You can get involved today by becoming a Volunteer. Sign up and you will be joining a group of change-makers, a network strong enough to impact positive change.
Your gift will keep the doors open, keep our collection free to the public, keep our podcasts on air, and help fund our community events. Support women’s voices. Support women’s history.
