While we are in transition and continuing our search for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners!
This AltLib Popup Series will run through the summer, presenting roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges, while we search for a new space to ground our collective. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

New Home Work Party
December 1, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Want to help the AltLib and aren’t quite sure how? Come join AltLib volunteers for a work party to help prep our interim home!
When: Sunday, Dec. 1, 11:00am
Where: 1309 Billy Frank Jr Street (the old pottery studio)
What to wear: Sturdy clothes for moving! Denim, gloves and boots recommended.
Bring your own sack lunch!
Why: December’s upon us, and we’ve gotta be out of the Karate Church by the 20th! We’re in the process of negotiating and signing a short-term lease with the owners of the old pottery studio on Billy Frank Jr. Street. The owners want to tear the building down, but the permitting process will take a minimum of 9 months, and we plan to continue our search for a more permanent home from there. They’re giving us access to the building throughout December so we can clear the space and have the Library up and running by the start of the lease in January.
What to expect: The pottery studio is still full of remnants — tables, clay, and all sorts of odds and ends. We’ll spend the day clearing out old debris and cleaning the space so it’s ready for repairs and a fresh layer of paint! We’ll provide cleaning supplies, rags, tools, and direction, and we hope you’ll bring the energy and good vibes!
