It was a very good day out in Sheffield on 21st May for a very well organised anarchist bookfair in the excellent Bank Street Arts venue. We spent quite a few bob on books, some from Stimulants http://radicalbooks.co.uk in Norwich who we haven't mentioned before on our site. We also handed cash to the usual peddlers of anarchist lit including News from Nowhere (Liverpool), Active Distribution (London) and Now or Never (Norwich) - who are always very generous - plus the local/regional stalls of AF, Solfed and IWW, amongst others. We even got a Class war lighter.

Opened in 1996 in Bradford's 1-in-12 Club (which is one of the earliest anarchist centres opened in Britain) the 1in12 Library curates a sizeable collection of literature, and maintains a space which plays host (in addition to the book-related activities) to films, meetings, internet access and meals. Check out the Library Collective page on the 1-in-12 club website which links to opening times and an online catalogue, plus enticing pictures of food and music accompanying the feast of reading material available. The 1-in-12 Club are also part of the NORLA network (we think).
Obviously it's long overdue that we added them to the Links and Friends area of our website so this is now rectified.
