Hillsboro Public LibraryIn 2015, we partnered with Hillsboro Public Library in Oregon and built them one of our portable reading room kits. The Hillsboro staff named the cart “Library on the Loose” (Lucy), and they are using the kit to reach patrons out in the community. Here are some photos from their early outings. Great work Hillsboro—we excited to see where you go with Lucy!

About our “new” name… Street Lab.

Street Lab began in Boston in 2006. In 2011, we moved the organization to NYC and launched the Uni Project, which was a portable reading room that roamed the city. In 2020, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
