The Latinx Library: Reimagining the Collection

Mayela Rodriguez

This exhibition showcases a growing collection of cartonera-style "Latinx Readers" made by the University of Michigan's Latinx community. Responding to the lack of a clearly defined Latinx studies collection in the library system, the mobile library is housed within the high-traffic lobby of Shapiro Library on Central Campus.

As part of this exhibition, the artist is leading several cartonera-making workshops. Full details can be found here:
