About Blood Fruit Library

Right now, we believe it is critical to be active in rejecting state sanctioned isolation. Our priority is each other. This project is the living embodiment of autonomous connection outside of what we're told is possible.

In 2017, a group of people in Chicago, decided to open a library/community center at Blood Fruit Printworks in Bridgeport. Since then, Blood Fruit Library has evolved and migrated across neighborhoods in order to work together with varying neighbors and friends.

As always, we are committed to sharing and preserving the words of those we agree and, inevitably, disagree with who have published their own thoughts for our reflection. We believe these written words can serve as a jumping off point for our own discussions with others, helping us build networks of affinity. We invite you to share your own favorite readings with the library (be they in the form of pamphlets, zines, books, digital articles, posters), so that we are learning and sharing together.

Although, we are amoebic in nature - moving, shape-shifting, and changing as we respond to the world around us, we continue our efforts to always offer a tangible "place" in addition to the books. We don't want another atomized pocket of learning through isolated book-reading. We want to always combine book sharing with human connection. A book is just a book. Let's meet, talk, connect, plan together.

We are now located at a home in Gage Park, in a fully contained sun room, separated from the house itself. We have contact-free check out and space for moments of social(ly distanced) connection. The library has WiFi and a seating area to get comfy and peruse what's available.

In order to maintain our public space, we do need your donations to keep the heat, lights, and internet on. We value your dedication to this project. Look below for offerings for Patrons.
