After a brief haitus, the Wingnut Anarchist Collective will again be hosting Open Hours on a weekly basis.

Our Open Hours are Wednesdays from 4pm to 9pm.

During Open Hours you can browse the Wingnut Radical Lending Library, check out books/return books, make a donation to our library collection, see our zines/magazines, get free literature or drop off some free literature, grab something from the free box or donate to it, play board games, use our computer/internet, drink coffee or tea, catch up on upcoming events, sit, read, relax, converse, pet dogs, etc.

Wingnut is a sober, all ages space.

Our guest policy, consent policy, allergies/accessibility, and directions/bus routes are all available on our website.

If you want to volunteer to bottomline Open Hours please email wingnut_collective@yahoo.com

Thanks to a generous donation of back issues of many different, awesome magazines, we now have over 100 new magazines in the Wingnut Radical Lending Library.

You can’t check these out, just because they would be too hard to replace, but you can come read them during Open Hours. We are also looking for volunteers for Open Hours- Wednesdays from 4-9pm and Fridays from 4-9pm.

The magazines include: Ms. Magazine, BUST, BITCH, Mother Earth News, Z magazine, Adbusters, Satya, Herbivore, Slingshot, Slug and Lettuce, Heart Attack, Clamor, Impact and more!

If you have anarchist/feminist/punk etc. magazines or zines you would like to see go to a good home, please be in touch!

Richmond has a new resource for folks in the City.

The Richmond Rag is “A free calendar of low cost or free events and collective DIY Spaces”.

It includes also a directory of radical spaces and organizations, as well as a list of places to get free or cheap healthy food (Food Not Bombs and local Farmer’s Markets).

Print copies are now available at the Wingnut for September.

You can access online also, and submit your events or organizations here: www.therichmondrag.blogspot.com

So submit your potlucks, protests, free classes, bike rides, meetings etc.!

Thanks to the folks who put this together, you know who you are!!!

Thanks to donations from several generous friends, and some thrift store purchases, we have added a good bunch of books to our library. Come by sometime to browse and check one out!

If you have books you think we might be interested in please feel free to come drop some off.

If you are interested in checking out these or other books, you can come by during Open Hours on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-9pm. 2005 Barton Avenue. Feel free to call ahead to confirm, as we sometimes cancel due to more pressing events.

The city said we needed to fix our fence (oh CAPS…), and our friend Steve came to town to help us.

We found materials in our own yard to fix the crappy parts of the fence. YAY!

Here are some pictures for your amazement and amusement:

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.

The Wingnut Anarchist Collective is working in the Southern Barton Heights neighborhood to help facilitate community autonomy and solidarity.

Open Hours are just that – open. You are welcome to come hang out, look at books, work on a project, drink tea, talk, do your homework, write, play a game etc.

You don’t have to want to engage in a particular activity to come use the space.

Open hours are intended to create a community space for both the Southern Barton Heights and the radical/anarchist community.

Every other Wednesday at 7:00pm is also Craft Night! Come to the Wingnut to draw, paint, sew, build, and create! Get creative and make something, or get involved with a project someone else is working on. Bring your projects and craft supplies.

Snacks always welcome as well!

Sober, all ages, like all Wingnut events.
