NPML Library Needs Your Help

Dear NPML supporter,

Thanks to your continuing generosity, 2015 has been a year of new achievements for the Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library. Now we need your help again, to continue NPML’s progress.

NPML continues to be an important venue for organizations promoting critical thinking on crucial issues, including expanding democracy, overcoming economic and social inequality, combating climate change, supporting diplomatic approaches to international crises, and fighting all forms of discrimination.

The library’s collection of important books and papers is being re-catalogued, with holdings to be listed online.

And, NPML’s importance as a cultural center continues to grow, with dance and musical groups finding the library a great place for their activities.

NPML hosts We Tell Our Stories, a grassroots film collective preparing a documentary about the intersection of ordinary people and community activism. We co-sponsor annual celebrations of African American History, and participate in 100,000 Poets for Change, a worldwide movement of poets and other artists.

New this year: open-houses at Thanksgiving and Christmas, to help homeless Oaklanders with food and clothing.

If you’ve been by 6501 Telegraph Ave. lately, you’re seeing a physical transformation to match the growing programs, with the interior newly painted and decorated, new projector and sound equipment, and some much needed repairs.

In case you haven’t had a chance to see the changes, here are some photos for you to enjoy.

All this is possible because you and others like you have been very generous.

Your continuing donations are very important to our continued progress – and, they are tax deductible!

Please make, or resume, your monthly pledge to NPML.

Send your check to:
Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library

All of us at NPML extend warm season’s greetings, and heartfelt appreciation for your support!

With many thanks, The NPML Board of Directors and volunteer collective
