Not too long ago, our friend stopped by to help with the massive library reorganization project we were undertaking. Here’s what she had to say about ours, an several other libraries in the area.

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!

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!
