The Resource Library is a space that wants to be anything and everything. Originally created by volunteers and interns it is intended as a space run by and for community.
It is ready to host new projects, foster new ideas and create new links with community!
The Resource Library Club is a new group setting up to use the space to its full capacity. Some things the club is interested in is hosting events and workshops, ordering new books, crafting, and community reading afternoons, or whatever else you see happening in this space!  If you are interested in being a part of this fresh spark of sustainability and creativity email Jad at engagement@sustainableconcordia.ca.

Get Involved


The Sustainable Concordia Resource Centre is run by a collective of interested and dedicated individuals. If you are interested in helping out in the library, joining the collective, or starting your own special project through the library, you can get involved by emailing us!


If you wish to getting rid of old books, zines, or periodicals that you think would be of interest to our membership, please drop them off in the space, or email us!


In addition to accepting donations,  the library is a great opportunity to circulate your own zines! We consider purchases from individual creators on a case-by-case basis.

Library Resources

Our resources specialize in social, economic, and environmental justice covering subjects such as activism and organizing, navigating capitalism, climate change, consumer justice, sustainable economics, education, gardening and more! As well, we have zines from all over North America, but we are especially interested in supporting local zine creators, particularly those with an activist, and DIY focus.

All of our books and zines can be found on our online catalog, Alternative Libraries Database!
