Non-profit, volunteer-powered and collectively run bookstore and community space that opened in February of 2002. Boxcar exists to promote reading, self-education, social equality, and social welfare through increased accessibility to literature and workshops- and the promotion of a community to support these projects. We are also home to the Midwest Pages to Prisoners Project, a non-profit group that sends free books to incarcerated folks throughout the United States to promote self-education and and aid in the rehabilitation process.

Located at 408 E. 6th St., Bloomington, IN 47408 |


Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating open and free access to reading.  By focusing attention on current and historical attempts to restrict or remove books from schools and libraries, BBW intends to inspire challenges to censorship in the press, in public collections, and in the classroom.  Look for “Banned Book” tags on books throughout the shop for reads that the American Library Association has recognized as a text that is or has been challenged or banned.

For more information, check out the official Banned Books Week website.
