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.

Crafting Safer Spaces – Discussion
February 1, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
This will be an ongoing event, each first Thursday of the month, to create better accountability processes within the space, and to create more accountability among the community. In the effort of maintaining the Alternative Library as a safer space, we will be discussing practices and protocols of the space, and exploring what engaged people can do to actively advocate for folks who have suffered from, or are targets for, sexual harassment and assault. A secondary function of this time may be to discuss holding safer space for marginalized groups of all kinds, including discussions about how to combat racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, systemic oppression, and the like in the Alt Lib and other connected venues and art spaces in the community.
Here is the current Alt Lib policy on safer space
