The Anomaly Archives is TinyCat’s “Library of the Month”!

TinyCat / LibraryThing - Library of the MonthWe are proud to report that TinyCat / LibraryThing have chose the Anomaly Archives as its “Library-of-the-Month” for December 2020! We first started using LibraryThing back in 2009 or so and were very happy to discover that they had expanded their features to include TinyCat: the easy to use OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog) for small libraries such as ours! While our current online catalog needs updating (we’ve added a couple thousand more books since the last update) you can search our OPACS at these links here: TinyCat / LibraryThing.

Emergency Fundraiser Event Series

The Anomaly Archives marathon series of FREE streaming “Virtual-Conference” fundraisers is nearing its end. We’ve got two more Saturday Streamathon sessions scheduled for this coming weekend, December 19th, and the final session is December 26th. You can watch all of our past streamathons at these links directly below. Further below is information on this coming Saturday’s lineup of presenters and special screenings of Director Brad Abrahams’ documentaries LOVE & SAUCERS and KEEP FOLKLORE ALIVE: TELOS OR BUST.
WARNING: The film LOVE & SAUCERS contains material
for mature audiences.

WE NEED A NEW HOME!

Recently our landlord informed us that they are not extending an invitation to renew our lease at our current location. We had hoped to be able to stay at the current location for as long as possible, or at least another year. However, the landlord, itself a nonprofit, has also been hit hard by the pandemic and is having to make its own tough decisions and that has included not renewing leases when its tenants’ current lease terms expire; this includes another nonprofit that has been there for 20 years.

Three years ago, our current location was recommended to us by one of our email newsletter subscribers. We hope that perhaps one of you reading this now might have another good location opportunity you are aware of and that you will share it with us. We’d prefer something with its own entrance, with good parking, centrally located (but preferably in South or East Austin / south of Koenig Lane aka 2222), 800-1200 square feet for no more than about $1,200 per month total. Even better are locations with utilities included in that pricing. If you have leads on good inexpensive location options for lease, please reach out to us via email at Contact@AnomalyArchives.org or leave the information in a voicemail at (512) 842-9046.

The Good News… 

Thanks to all of you who have donated to our fundraiser – whether here via GoFundMe, or via our Facebook Fundraiser campaign page or discreetly via PayPal or other channels – we have officially reach the halfway point of $10,000 towards our total goal of $20,000! We are tremendously humbled by everyone’s amazing generosity. Thank you! We still have a long way to go towards our total goal – and we have 3 more Saturday Streamathons to go before the end of the year and the end of this emergency fundraiser. Thanks again for all your support!
