Little Read Books is a pop-up free book stand run by an all-volunteer mutual aid collective on the occupied indigenous land commonly known as Denver.

We work in our community to get books and supplies in the hands of people who need and read them. We strive to provide a space for left politics of all stripes and work with organizations that are fighting to transform our world. We have no owners, bosses, or profit motive, and are committed to building a just world where all may live free of oppression and exploitation.
