Word Up Community Bookshop / Librería Comunitaria


Organization Overview

Word Up is a multilingual, general-interest community bookshop and arts space in Washington Heights, New York City, committed to preserving and building a neighborhood in which all residents help each other to live better informed and more expressive lives, using books as an instrument of reciprocal education and exchange, empowering not only themselves, but their community. Word Up is 100% run by volunteers. By hosting readings, concerts, screenings, art exhibitions, workshops, community meetings and talks, and other activities for kids and adults, we do our best to support and fortify the creative spirit unique to our diverse, uptown community.
