The WARP Library is an open, deinstututional resource for all. The collection mainly houses artist books, arts-related reference books, zines and pamphlets. These span from the socio-political to the experimental, from 60s avant-garde retrospectives to contemporary exhibition publications; and hopefully everything in between. This in an ever-developing, growing collection; if you have any suggestions for what you would like to see stocked in the library, then feel free to drop us an email or have a chat to one of us when you’re here!
Additionally there is deskspace, and there are also computers available to use which include word processing & creative design softwares. We especially encourage those who don’t usually have access to this (marginalised and/or low-income artists and visitors) to make use of this resource!
You’re welcome to come in and spend time in the Warp Library reading and browsing the shelves and you can also use the room as a work area for desk based research, writing etc.
Currently the WARP library is reference only, meaning you can’t borrow any books as of yet. However, the library is open during exhibition periods to be used and perused. Usually the room is free, though occasionally there are meetings in the space. To make sure the library is free when you’d like to come in, or enquire about anything to do with the library (including booking time on the computers) then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
