About the Alternative Library

The Alternative Library offers an amazing public book collection, heavily featuring art books, comics, and work from many small publishers. Beyond that we’re also a community space, hosting events 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 run a small-press bookstore, with a curated selection of international independent publications, and featuring many of our volunteers’ favorite books alongside books, zines, records, tapes and prints made by members of the AltLib.
