The Community Change library houses some of the best sources of information on 
racism in the United States – and its right here in Boston!  Last year, four 
librarians came together to give some tender loving care to this amazing 
collection. We’ve updated the online catalog, and begun outreach to new 
communities, but we need your help to move forward.
 
On Saturday and Sunday, February 19-20, we will be conducting a comprehensive 
inventory of the collection. By going book by book, through the 3,000 volumes, 
we hope to catch errors in the catalog, determine subject areas in which to 
expand, and identify books that need repair. This is an easy task – but it takes 
time, and we need your help to complete the inventory in just one weekend!
 
Can you spare two hours – or more!?   If you are able to join us, please contact 
Susie at library at communitychangeinc.org.  We'd love your help!
  
Community Change was born out of the Civil Rights Movement and in response to 
the Kerner Commission which named racism as "a white problem." CCI has done what 
few organizations are willing to do: shine a spotlight on the roots of racism in 
white culture with the intention of dealing with racism at its source, as well 
as with its impact on communities of color.
