Slab City Library

Liked: Great community. Donation based which means that even just putting in work and not being an asshole means you'll get your needs met
Disliked: No wifi
I've been to Slab City Library three or four times. Each one extremely memorable, each one with lots of smiles. Just don't be an asshole, and even if you are an asshole, own the fuck up to it and apologize.

Liked: The wonderful sense of community the Library emanates, the Idea of a donation funded bar is brilliant, providing the slabs with a sense of sophistication (library...), the people who run this place are amazing
Disliked: The jambo ended too early, did not get to spend enough time here
I was skeptical about the slabs the first couple times went through there, but that is only because I did not meet the right groups of people. The library is the right group of people.

Drop some cash into the donation bucket, or bring them something from their "wish list" board, you wont regret it. As the projects these people are working on are commendable.

I still want to come back and help ya'll finish the other side of your perimeter fence...
Liked: Bad ass punk library in a post apocalyptic mad-max-like setting. Great parties, cool people, interesting books!
Disliked: Summers are brutal as fuck, you haven't experienced hot until you've been in the desert in 125 degree heat!
Cornelius Vango is the head librarian at this space (check out their youtube channel) and they always have a cool crew of people on staff every winter for me to come visit and hang out with. I miss all of you! Just don't be a douche and you'll likely make some good friends here.

There's a surprising selection of books, everything from science and literary arts to fiction novels. There's also a free table, which is useful for finding clothes, and the whole space is kid friendly (with children's books and games) if you have a rugrat with you.

The bar is a centerpiece of the library and while quiet during the day (it's not really a place to get schwilly -- it's a library) it's great when there are parties or celebrations at night. Had some wild nights screaming song lyrics with some of my best friends in the world there :D

You're gonna have to be a bit more specific.
Liked: Books. Lots of books. And Freedom. And SHENANARCHY!
Disliked: No public WiFi or electricity hookups (charging stations).
The Slab City Lizard Tree Library is by far the most awesome Library I've ever been to. It is unlike any other library I've ever been to, in that it is completely off-grid. The staff is very friendly, as long as you're not an asshole or treat them like a zoo exhibit.
