  • I work for a college access program, the Schuler Scholar Program, in high schools of the Chicagoland area. We work with high-performing students who are primarily first-generation to attend college and low-income. During the summers, we take a select group of juniors in the program on trips that expose them to new issues and ideas. My coworker (CCed) and I are taking a small group (6-10) of our Scholars to New York City to learn about feminism and women’s history. As part of our visit, we would love if they could explore the zine library at Barnard or engage in any sort of educational programming that the zine library could provide. Would any staff be willing to chat with our Scholars about this important part of women’s activism and allow them to explore Barnard’s collection?
