The library also includes an archive of political projects happening around Melbourne and Australia.

We hope existing collectives will make use of this library space by establishing collections of their own materials there.

If you want to support the library, you can donate:

  • Politically-engaged zines, books, pamphlets, CDs and movies
  • DIY erotica
  • Materials from the political projects you're engaged in, including fliers, posters, pamphlets, meeting minutes, media coverage…

  • We are in the process of creating an online catalogue for the loophole library, however this could take a while. As the different sections come online, we will update this page.

    In the mean time, drop in an search around in person.
