About Us


Arlene Rengert and Karen Iaobucci began the Laundromat Library League in 2014.  The idea has spread all over the Delaware Valley and beyond. We are excited to be expanding and helping more children every month.

Book Lovers are needed to gather, sort and deliver books.

Our Volunteer Groups

Student Book drives, neighborhood collections, and a long list of diverse community groups and religious groups all participate. It is one way for everyone to do a little and make a big impact. We have retired teachers, various civic organizations, schools and youth groups who all pitch in.  We are here to help you get started with this important and rewarding way to bring books to children.

Our thanks to all of our monthly and bi monthly helpers. You make it all happen with just a few hours a month of your time.

Our History

WE  BEGAN in 2014 in West Chester PA and quickly expanded into Reading and Philadelphia. There are now over 40 active sites in Southeastern PA, plus satellite sites in New Jersey, Ohio, Virginia and New York! In 2015 we received a Literacy Award for promoting reading.  We are committed to sharing books with children wherever a support group can be established.  

As of September 2016 we are a 501-C Non Profit. All donations to our cause are tax deductible. All proceeds are used for purchasing books or costs for maintaining our web presence.  We have no salaried help.

Our Volunteers at Laundromat Library League come from a long list of community groups and interfaith religious groups.  We work individually and together collecting, sorting and delivering books.  Each volunteer makes his or her own schedule.  Each Book Box is refreshed once or twice a month. Groups are encouraged to engage in book drives in their communities.
