While we are in transition and searching for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners.

The AltLib Popup Series will present roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

Book Sale: Supporter’s Preview

December 6, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Can’t get enough of the weird, wild, wacky books we’ve got at the AltLib? Is your secret inner hoarder wanting to take some of our collection home? Come join us for our HUGE BOOK SALE, with all proceeds going to the AltLib~~~

Fri, Dec 6: Book Sale: Supporter’s Preview — 2-7pm
Come out to get the first pick of books! Because we’ve got a limited number of steals, Friday is your chance to swoop the scores while they’re still about.

Let’s be real: more than 9000 books is too many to move. Since we received notice to vacate the church, our volunteers have been diligently buzzing about, curating sections of the library. We’re slimming the collection down, honing in on books that embody the spirit of the Alternative Library: local, independent, and marginalized voices and perspectives. So fret not — our best material remains, and now it’ll be easier to find.

And all the books we’re removing? They’re for sale!! Some pure gold, some straight bogus, you’ll have to come check out the sale to find what suits your particular biblio-itch.

AND! Every kid that comes out gets a free kid’s book…
