Libros Schmibros: Great Name, Great Concept


Libros Schmibros is a community-based, not-for-profit bookstore/lending library located in the Boyle Heights section of Los Angeles. Run mainly by its dedicated founder and a team of volunteers, the project champions the pleasure of reading and its power to change lives.


Founded by former book critic and author David Kipen, Libros Schmibros is supported primarily by donations of cash and books. Along with selling and lending books, the project brings writers into area schools, promotes literacy programs, and book events around L.A..
