Lucy Parsons Bookstore
The Lucy Parsons Center is an independent, non-profit, volunteer-run radical bookstore and community space in Boston. Its well-stocked bookstore offers new and used books and more than 200 magazines, newspapers, and journals, covering every wing of the progressive movement. PBP’s affiliation with the Lucy Parsons Center allows us satisfy prisons’ common requirement that books sent to prisoners originate from a bookstore or other vendor.

United First Parish Church
Also know as “the Church of the Presidents,” UFPC has provided us with office space at nominal rent since 2004. Although we have no affiliation to the church, we could not operate without its support and we treasure the light-filled space in which our volunteers operate. We share the building with a vibrant array of other community activities. It is also the final resting place of presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams as well as their wives. Visit www.ufpc.org for more information on this historic building.
Better World Books
Better World Books is an online bookseller and social capital pioneer. The organization sells books on behalf of PBP and remits a percentage of earnings which fund our postage costs. For more information please visit www.betterworldbooks.com
Big Hearted Books
Big Hearted Books collects unwanted books and other media and redistributes them to people who can use them. For various reasons we cannot use every book that is donated to us. Big Hearted Books sorts through the books we can’t use and sells or donates them to community groups. They also have been our most consistent supplier of dictionaries. In their first year of business Big Hearted Books kept over 100 tons of books out of landfills by recycling. For more information please visit www.bigheartedbooks.com.
