Libraries Without Borders (LWB US) is an education nonprofit that brings the 21st-century library and its resources to underserved communities nationwide. We partner with public libraries, schools, and local organizations to transform public spaces into places of lifelong learning—from basic reading, writing, and computer skills to health, legal, and financial literacy.
Since 2015 we have created out-of-classroom learning opportunities in laundromats, low-income housing co-ops, public parks and community gardens, houses of worship, and community centers. Everywhere we work, we connect people to the vital information they need to live, work, learn, and play.
A branch of Bibliothèques Sans Frontières (BSF), LWB US is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and oversees all work in the United States. Our programs have won numerous awards, including the Google Impact Challenge and the Library of Congress International Literacy Award.
