Street Librarian

"Meet Portland's Street Librarian." The Portland Mercury / Allison Hallett.
Portland, Oregon: The Portland Mercury Online, June 22nd 2011.

"When I went down to investigate, I met Laura Moulton, who handed me a business card reading "Street Librarian," and explained that she recently received a RACC grant to fund a project called Street Books, a mobile library that provides books for the homeless. (Or "people living outside," to use the website's wording.) The bike-powered library has a small trailer full of 40-odd books—an impressively diverse collection skewing slightly toward regional authors (Jim Lynch, Benjamin Parzybok, Kevin Sampsell, Tom Robbins)."
