Phoenix underground library opening

On the last day of the 2012 General Assembly meeting all of the banned books smUUggled into Phoenix were donated to Librotraficante, to be used to launch Librotraficante’s fifth underground library, located at the office of the community organization Puente in Phoenix.   And cash donated to the HUUmanists for Librotraficante was given to the project to buy more books.

A grand opening of the underground library at Puente was held on Sunday evening.  The books were made available for lending.  Thirty-six were borrowed in the first hour.  John Hooper and Roger Brewin represented HUUmanists at the celebration, which included readings from the banned books by young people, skits, music, food, and poetry.  Roger addressed the attendees and voiced the continued support of the underground library movement by HUUmanists Asscociation.
