The library in the Quarter

The Iron Rail Anarchist Library and Bookstore is now at home in the French Quarter. It has fully moved into its excellent location at Barracks near Decatur (behind Gnome) and is open for business. As proud member #77, I have been involved since its beginnings as I was with Crescent Wrench before this iteration. The need for more collectives, more shared open space and more literary places is dire so support those who stick it out and do it with humor and openness by attending Iron Rail’s benefit on July 28th.

And by coming by and using the Rail.

80 days after the NOPD broke its own laws to evict the Iron Rail from its location in the ARC at 511 Marigny, New Orleans’ only anarchist bookstore and library has returned…but this time the black flag has unfurled in the French Quarter!Yesterday the Iron Rail opened its doors onto 503 Barracks next to Decatur, across the street from local coffee shop Envie’s, and next door to our friends at Gnome and Riot Supply Co. Well into the night food and wine was served and art displayed. Old and new faces streamed in and out of the boutique as folks celebrated the new space and satiated their suppressed appetites for rebellious readings.
