About the Alternative Library

The Alternative Library offers a public book collection, heavily featuring art, small press, and radical ideas. We are also host to a wide array of events, with something happening here nearly every day, including concerts, film screenings, workshops, and readings. To see what we’ve got coming up check out our events calendar, and if you’d like to set up something in our space, read about our booking guidelines.

We also operate a small-press shop, with a selection of international independent publications, alongside books, zines, records, tapes and prints made by members of the AltLib.
