The Sparrows’ Nest Library and Archive
Curating tens of thousands of books, journals, pamphlets, zines, leaflets, posters and other archival materials, we focus on the history of anarchist groups and individuals in the UK and beyond, as well as other social movements, protests and radicalism in Nottingham and the
wider regions of East Midlands & South Yorkshire. Visit us in Nottingham (UK) or access thousands of documents in our Digital Library, with more being added all the time.
We hold huge collections of papers including Freedom, Anarchy (First and
Second Series), Black Flag, Direct Action and thousands of other titles.
Pamphlets, punk zines, leaflets, posters, as well as extensive
collections of books on history, philosophy, economics and much more are
available to be explored.
Local materials include e.g. documents from campaigns such as the fight
against the Poll Tax, or the local anti-militarist/peace movement, as
well as many rare and otherwise hard to access titles, including Grass
Roots, Nottingham Voice, Nottingham Women’s Diary, Gay Nottingham,
Outright, Gay East Midlands, Virus, Nottingham Anarchist News, Flux and
many, many more.
