Thank you for believing in the Bi Pan Library’s mission! There are a variety of ways you can support our work and spread our resources to people who will enjoy them.
Due to COVID-19 the library does not currently have a P.O. box for accepting donated materials, but we will open one when possible. In the meantime, we have set up an Adopt-A-Book program. The library is currently focusing on obtaining bi/pan/m-spec focused nonfiction, and memoir or fiction by authors of color, disabled authors, and trans/nonbinary/Two Spirit/intersex authors.
If you are a published author or a publishing house and would like to donate a copy of your own book, please feel free to contact us as we may be able to make a mailing exception.
Funds donated via Ko-Fi are used in the following ways:
- Purchases of books, zines, and other materials.
- Web hosting / social media management costs. (The library uses WordPress, MailChimp, and Later.)
- Office supply costs such as printer paper and ink, book labels, etc.
The Bi Pan Library is not a registered nonprofit and your donation is not tax-deductible.
The Bi Pan Library relies on word of mouth! So please, share our work with your community! Do you have a queer friend who loves to read? Does your local queer library need help expanding their bi/pan/m-spec resources? Would your Twitter, Instagram, or TikTok audience be interested in the Bi Pan Library’s work? Do you run a YouTube channel, blog, or newsletter with a queer audience? We are so grateful for your help extending the library’s resources to people who can use and enjoy them.
The Bi Pan Library has chosen to participate in affiliate marketing programs as a form of fundraising. We receive a small commission (at no cost to you) when you purchase products via the links in our catalogue, blog posts, etc. We have chosen to affiliate with Bookshop.com, because your purchases will support independent bookstores and hopefully in turn encourage independent bookstores to stock bi/pan/m-spec books and feature bi/pan/m-spec authors. You can learn more about Bookshop’s affiliate program here.
