The vast majority of us are residents of Northern Manhattan, and we do this on a 100% volunteer basis. We wouldn’t be able to do all we do if it weren’t for our daily, weekly, monthly, or whenever-we-have-a-moment meetings of comrades—to staff shifts, facilitate participation of all kinds, acquire books and furniture from all over the city, program events, hook up the technology, construct the analog systems, hash it out face to face, bring the comic relief, look to the future and live in the present, get our hands dirty, and administrate like the wind. We come together and do this as a community, to prove it can be done.

And of course, we invite you to JOIN US! If you would like to volunteer at Word Up in any capacity, please email volunteer [at] wordupbooks [dot] com.

  1. Vern , pls make a link to my name: http://kupel.net. There is virtual shtetl in Ukraine “Jews of Kupel the Shetl”, all murdered in 1941-1942. My grandies used to live there

  2. I believe this is a true example of how a community that comes together can have a significant impact on the lives of many. Keep up the great work! You will have my support as City Councilman. http://www.markotto2013.com Let me know if I can help you in any way.

  3. Go Mark Otto, We are behind you.

  4. I live right around the corner and would love to work there. I’m in the need of some cash for school supplies for next year. Next year I would be a sophomore drama major in high school and the supplies list for drama majors is long. Plus I need to keep busy this summer. I have bought books and really enjoyed the staff at Word Up.
