About us

The Scottish Radical Library (SRL) houses hundreds of books, journals, DVDs,
posters and other documents.  It is a unique resource in Scotland and has a
substantial collection of material of social, cultural and economic
interest, comprising thousands of items donated by users, supporters,
members and publishers. The SRL exists to preserve, promote and
celebrate cultures of resistance and to serve as a self-managed public
space to learn and to share – a real ‘people’s library’. We hope that
the literature we stock empowers and inspires people to make positive
changes to the world – from challenging unequal power structures to
breaking down prejudiced attitudes to others and ourselves. We meet as a group every second Tuesday at ACE 8 to 8 pm and welcome newcomers to come along.

You can contact us at srl@noflag.org.uk.  Get in touch!
