As a Patron, you help determine the future of the site by supporting my work at digital preservation and presentation of important works in the living Western Esoteric Tradition, Hermeticism in a broad-sense, and Aleister Crowley’s Thelema. Not only that, but you will also support all the work I do with encouraging new music, art and letters from those who feel drawn to these topics and ideas, or, especially, incorporate and manifest ritual and magick in their works.

As a Patron, you help make the magick. Gander at the variety of perks available. Select the best level of ongoing support that you are able and willing to pledge. And, let's conjure our community and evoke excellence together!

Goals
60 of 129 patrons
A basic monthly funding level for the library.

If just 1% of the people on social media following the Hermetic Library, or an even smaller fraction of those who visit the library site, were to become Patrons then we would cover all the monthly costs of keeping the library online and provide additional resources to start expanding; such as paying additional creators to help with new content and additional help in preparing and proofing more relevant public domain material.

I pledge that all funds beyond the basic funding goal will be paid forward to help support other creatives, projects, researchers, &c. doing esoteric and occult work similar to the library.
