The Wingnut Radical Lending Library is a constantly growing collection of anarchist, radical, queer, DIY, environmental, vegan, popular upsrising and more books. Every month we receive new titles from PM Press and AK Press. We also accept donations and purchase books on our own.

You can come by the Wingnut during our weekly  Open Hours- from 4 to 9pm on Wednesday and Fridays (subject to change however, dependent on other events in Richmond, you can call ahead to check 804 303 5449). We are also looking for people who can volunteer to facilitate Open Hours. We have 944  books available for browsing, reading, and checking out. We also have our ever expanding and newly organized Wingnut Zine Library (over 540 titles so far), which you are welcome to read during Open Hours, but which cannot be checked out.

If you are looking for books or zines on a particular subject you can search ahead of time online at http://www.librarything.com/thewingnutrva
