We finished adding some final details to our bookshelves, and because we have gotten SO many books recently we need to reorganize our radical lending library. That means all books off the shelves, checking them to make sure they are stamped online at http://www.librarything.com/thewingnutrva, making sure they are appropriately categorized, and then figuring out how to cram them all back on the shelves.

Anyone with librarian tendencies who is interested in helping us with this awesome, nerdly process is welcome to come over this Thursday, June 9th from 5pm on. We will have dinner provided to soothe the bookish appetites.

Our good and well read friend Ozzy just donated 48 books to the Wingnut Radical Lending Library. From pagan to primitivist to indigenous to fantasy to political, these books run the gamut. If you want to see these new selections, or browse our entire collection you can do so at http://www.librarything.com/thewingnutrva

If you would like to come see the books in person, and even check one out, you can come by Wingnut Open Hours on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4pm to 9pm at 2005 Barton Avenue. We also do accept donations of books, so if you have some books that you think would fit into our collection don’t be shy to bring them by!
