We're hitting the road! Bring a mini version of our Pop-Up Libraries to your indoor and outdoor events this summer via the BiblioTreka.

How the BiblioTreka Works

Request a BiblioTreka appearance through email. Please include dates, duration of event, and any other considerations you'd like us to know about. Once availability is determined, our volunteers will carefully curate a selection of materials from our collection based on your event and audience interests or neighborhood. We’re happy to work with organizations of all types and sizes in order to share Chicago's community media with a broader audience and help support the mission and goals of other cultural organizations and Chicago area communities.

A few places the BiblioTreka has trekked previously

  • Chicago Humanities Fest
  • CHIRP Record Fair
  • Garfield Park Conservatory & Humboldt Park for Poetry Center's Poetry in the Parks
  • Chicago Zine Fest
  • Comfort Station Logan Square & the Logan Square Farmers Market

We would like to thank all of our IndieGoGo supporters who helped get the BiblioTreka back on the road. You're the absolute best and we couldn't do it without out you.

Email to request a visit from the BiblioTreka or to inquire about other types of Pop-Pp Libraries offered by Read/Write.
