Modern Times Bookstore needs you!
San Francisco’s left literary treasure needs your help. Modern Times has always been one of the most progressive independent bookstores in North America, but for the past several years it has been operating at a loss, and is now facing a severe financial crisis that threatens our very existence. We need your support to get through the end of 2013 – and to expand our commitment to creating an inclusive community space into 2014.
Modern Times is preparing to step into a new era of progressive politics and radical activism. We have exciting plans to create a more inviting space for our many communities to come together with exciting events, new books and new paint, comfortable reading chairs, expanded lighting, and even food and drink. In order to do that, we need your help to pay down the debt incurred at the previous Valencia Street location, and realize a new vision of Modern Times on 24th Street, in the cultural heart of the Mission District. We are moving forward with a comprehensive business model and carefully constructed plans so that we can not only survive but thrive.
We must raise $100,000 by the end of January to survive. We’ve just started but we are definitely on our way. As of December 13, we have raised 9% of our goal – nearly $9,000 in contributions and pledges. So, that’s success. But we still have a long way to go. We need you!
