About The Pilipinx American Library:

PAL / The Pilipinx American Library transforms the museum’s Resource Room into a reading room and gathering space to highlight the writings of poet, activist and oral historian Al Robles (1930–2009); feminist experimental poet Barbara Jane Reyes, author of “Invocation to Daughters” (City Lights, 2017); and the Kearny Street Workshop poets. Their work embodies the struggle, resistance, joy and promise of Filipino American life in the Bay Area.

Dedicated to publications exclusively by Filipino voices, PAL / The Pilipinx American Library is a mobile, non-circulating library that collects print histories and celebrates narratives by writers, poets, artists and scholars across the diaspora.

PAL / Pilipinx American Library is supported in part by AARP. Thursday Nights are supported by Nordstrom and Wells Fargo.
