Bad Egg Books Infoshop on 13th Now Open

Posted by the Bad Egg Books Collective on Portland Indymedia

Bad Egg Books Infoshop has just opened up in downtown Eugene, OR! We're a reading room right now, and soon to be community lending library for radical materials! We're also a community and meeting space, sharing our space with a vegan soulfood cafe and art gallery. Come check us out!
Located downtown, at the corner of 13th and Oak, it represents Eugene's first dedicated infoshop space in over 10 years.

An infoshop is a gathering place for activists and provides reading materials and resources for the community. We plan to provide a hub for community members to meet, organize, and most importantly become educated about radical politics. Completely volunteer run and collectively managed, the infoshop operates in opposition to profit.

Bad Egg Books shares its space with the Hummingbird Gallery and is located adjacent to the newly opened Cornbread Café, a vegan soul food cart.


address: 112 E. 13th Ave, Eugene, OR

We are asking for donations of a loveseat or comfy chair, lamps, DVDs and CDs, and most importantly books and zines!

The Bad Egg Books collective is currently operating as a reading room and meeting space, with plans to open as a lending library and bookstore in the very near future. There is also tea and coffee for sale at the space (cheap!).

If you have a donation or want information about volunteering at the infoshop, email badeggbooks@gmail.com or drop by the space at 112 E. 13th. Our hours are, for now, every day from 11am to 3pm.

Please contact the collective in advance if you have a larger item like a couch to donate to ensure there are people there to receive it, as well as space to take it.
