The Knoxville Anarchist Library Mobile (KALM) is a traveling lending library. You can invite the library to attend your event, or you can find us at one of our regular locations.

KALM carries material on anarchism, socialism, communism, liberation, revolution, any anti-oppression topics, or on any marginalized groups or cultures. We accept donations of books, zines, magazines, and other media. We accept donations of money which is used exclusively to purchase books from AK Press, a worker-run collective that publishes and distributes radical books.

The best way to keep in touch with us is through our Facebook page. You can message us through the page to schedule the library to come to you, and you can be notified when we are making an appearance elsewhere.
