(only one text up currently, works in progress)
Tor Onion Services
When using Tor, vanity onion addresses that will automatically load when visiting the libraries we host. Having an onion address like this means that your connection never leaves the tor network, from departure to arrival (Exit nodes are the end point of the Tor tunnel that goes back to “clearnet”. Our onion address is hanging out in that tunnel). You can read more about it here (and suggest you bookmark the specific Tor link as well): https://theanarchistlibrary.org/special/tor-onion-services
On September 2, 2021 a new torrent was released from the library that includes all the texts and formats as of the release date wrapped up into a 3.5gb file (English language project only). Download and seed the magnet link with your preferred Torrent client here:
The library also released a HTML offline version of everything via the ZIM file format with the snapshot taken on April 2, 2021. It’s a little outdated at this point, but idea of sharing easily accessible file of everything, seems pretty useful. Hope to update it in the future and have more frequent releases.

The Anarchist Library will be in real life | away from keyboard this coming October 2, 2021! We are going to have a table of free zines printed from the library and curated by us at the New York City Anarchist Bookfair (or is it book fair?). Come say hello and grab a grab a free zine! We’re trying to share all the possibilities of printing and sharing anarchist texts from the library.
For 13+ years and counting of The Anarchist Library project has been funded by the participants, largely in part by one person. Recently, some participants and users of the project have asked how they can help support the cost of maintaining the library, which is hosted on our own infrastructure that we maintain. We asked our friends at Little Black Cart https://littleblackcart.com/ to help setup a donation page for us, with everything going to library project. Help us out if you’d like at the following link:

(Unfortunately for the time being International donations cannot be accepted, but perhaps a method will be devised to allow for them in the future.)
Social Media stuff:
The library has an official social media account over on the self-hosted Anarchy Planet Pleroma instance here:
We share more frequent updates there and occasional new and old texts published on the library that we find intriguing.
There is also a Twitter page, that used to be a robot retweeting new things, but is now curated by a human: https://twitter.com/anarchistlib.

You can add new texts to the library here. You can also edit each text on the library if you find any errors and would like to help out. No username or login required.
If the library is ever down, you can find a mirror of the project here:
It you can help mirror the project, it would be nice to have more mirrors of all the projects available as old mirrors have disappeared.
