As the Positive Charge! PDX CTL webpage highlights, the mission of our Compassion Through Literature initiative is to foster a more compassionate, equitable world by increasing the circulation and access of books that reflect and honor the lives of all people, especially those underrepresented in published literature. We're making this happen in several ways, including by:

  • Encouraging Little Free Library stewards to carry more diverse books.

  • Increasing the availability of diverse books in already established free little CTL libraries.

  • Frequently sharing posts about diverse books. encouraging people to check them out and broaden their minds.

  • Hosting this summer celebration to showcase how diversity and inclusion enriches our lives!

Your RSVP will help us to plan for snacks and book giveaways!
