Carefully Curated By Our Community

Library Materials For Social Change & Innovation.

At Your Request:

We love hearing about new materials, and understanding what issues you care about.

If you're interested in taking an active role in our materials, check out our Volunteer Curator Program.

Here are some of the latest books added to our collection on behalf of our patron community.

Cornell Lending Library

Textbooks are expensive. And for many students, the cost of textbooks deters them from taking the courses they want. This is barrier to education that we're hoping to dissolve with a special collection we've created in collaboration with students.

Meet the Cornell Lending Library. This is a collection of textbooks which are available to students on a semester-long loan.

Shaleshock Media Archive Project

In 2015 we began the process of archiving hundreds of videos from grassroots media activists in the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier of New York State. The archive was started by media activist Cris McConkey, and includes most of his work. His documentation spanned years of organizing around fracking issues and creates a timeline of the battle to prevent fracking in our area.
