Refreshments will be available, and zines will be out for your perusal! Take some time to browse the collection, introduce yourself, and learn about the project while you are here.

We are also seeking donations of folding chairs for your comfort, and welcome any donations to the library collection as well.

The Soapbox is located at 741 S. 51st Street, Philadelphia, PA and is accessible by the 34 trolley and the 64 bus. Contact us at with questions!
