Librarians and Archivists with Palestine (LAP) is a network of self-defined librarians, archivists, and information workers in solidarity with the Palestinian struggle for self-determination. For more information about our unifying principles, click here.

In April and May 2018, LAP’s One Book, Many Communities campaign highlighted the poignant young adult novel Code Name: Butterfly by Ahlam Bsharat. Read about the campaign, our events, and related resources in our 2018 toolkit.

In April 2015, LAP members traveled to Palestine for a more in-depth, follow-up working trip. Read our delegation report and solidarity statement here.
