We spent Thursday night and a good chunk of the day Friday entering all of the books from our Radical Lending Library onto the Librarything, adding tags to pre-existing entries, and re-organizing the shelves. The result (aside from our crossed eyes and papercuts) is a library collection that is much easier to search by subject online and better arranged on the shelves.

We had over 200 books that were in our collection but not yet recorded as in our collection. Now all of those titles are available in our online database.

To search our collection, go to: http://www.librarything.com/home/thewingnutrva  We have 2 collections currently- one is the Approaching Apocalypse Zine Library which currently has just 203 catalogued titles.  Our book collection, titled Your Library, now has 764 titles.

Some of our categories in our library include: guns, gardens, DIY (Do It Yourself), Myths, Religion, Guerilla Warfare, Government Oppression, Anti-Civilization, Ecology, Civil Rights, Black Liberation, Radical Activism, Hawai’i, Australia, Indigenous, Richmond, Richmond Authors, Queer Theory, Queer History, Queer Biography, Queer Fiction, Feminism, Medicine and Alternative Medicine, Animal Rights, Food Politics, Cookbooks, Art, Music, Bikes, Military Handbooks, Field Guides, Zine Compilations, Graphic Novels, Travelling, Globalization, Anarchism, Radical Fiction, Prisons, Anarchist Practice, Mexico, Central America, South America, Celts, Consumer Culture, U.S. Cultural Studies, Home Renovation and More!

Please, feel free to go onto librarything.com and search the collections here at the Wingunt (thewingnutrva is our screenname on that website) If you seem somehting you like, come by during Open Hours (Wednesday and Friday from 4-9pm)and check it out (you can check a book out for 2 weeks). If you can’t make open hours just send us an email or give us a call and we can arrange a different time for your visit. (804) 303 5449 wingnut_collective@yahoo.com

If you would like to donate us books, we are specifically interested in adding to our Anarchism, Radical Fiction, Radical Activism, Black Liberation, Civil Rights, Prisons, Government Oppression, Queer Theory, Queer History, and DIY sections. But if your donation is to a different category that would be lovely as well!
