Makara is getting ready to open our doors!

Reading empowers individuals, and access to knowledge is key to a healthy society.  The Makara Lending Library will specialize in books that promote a variety of perspectives, including narratives by people of color, immigrants, Muslims, the LGBTQ community, and other underrepresented groups. Inclusive literature, accessible arts programs, and citizen journalism are top priorities.

We'll be rolling out improvements to our site within the next couple of weeks, including details on our grand opening, a calendar of events, and a new community book review feature. Sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop and visit our DONATE page to learn how you can get involved
