EVENT July 17: Opening Minnesota Wash and Learn Initiative (WALI) in West St Paul

I learned about this event from Libraries Without Borders US 

Saint Paul community, join us July 17th at the newly established Saint Paul WALI laundromat, Beautiful Laundrette, where we will be hosting an “Introducing WALI” celebration with free tacos, games for kids, and community partners.

In-person events at Beautiful Laundrette include: a pop-up Housing Clinic weekly on Wednesday evenings with Neighborhood House and in-house summer tutoring for K-5th grade youth Tuesday and Thursday mornings alongside Reading Partners. In August, pop-up legal clinics will begin with the help of partners in legal aide services.

Thanks to the Saint Paul Public Library for co-hosting a virtual story time, West Side Community Organization for their partnership in Rent Stabilization day, and Wild Rumpus’ participation in our Book Giveaway – our programming would not be possible without your support.

I had to get more details from the host Beautiful Laundrette:

  • July 17, 3 pm – sundown
  • 625 Stryker Ave St Paul
  • Fun and games
  • Prizes
  • DJ with Finnoh, and Malamanya, Live Afro-Caribbean music
  • BBQ by Black Market St.P

Come for WALI, stay for Malamanya. (I spend a lot time looking at local Minnesota bands, so with experience I can say, they are fantastic!)
