Inspiring solidarity, advocating for justice, equity for all

https://eastsidefreedomlibrary.org Tax ID 46-3794535


The East Side Freedom Library (ESFL)  has its home in the former Arlington Hills library, one of St. Paul’s  historic Carnegie library buildings at 1105 Greenbrier Street, located  in the Payne-Phalen neighborhood.

The ESFL’s mission is to inspire solidarity, advocate for justice and work toward equity for all.  The  library houses non-circulating research collections that appeal to  interested general learners as well as scholars, with innovative  databases and finding aids that make using the collections fun and  vital.

Story is a major  theme of the ESFL, and the telling and gathering of stories, through  formal interviews, workshops, and small-scale public performances, will  allow local residents and interested publics to learn more about the  work and residential histories of the East Side.
