Oxford Poetry Library launched in April 2017 as a way to bring poetry out into the community. It aims to provide a space in Oxford for people to access and talk about poetry, discover new writing, and be platformed as local writers.

We have a collection of about 500 books, from classics to contemporary writing, anthologies, and picturebooks for little ones. It is free to join the library and anyone can borrow books, with no late fees or punishing fines for overdues.Oxford Poetry Library Collage 2

We operate out of a big custom-built purple cargo bike, peddling (and pedalling) our wares to farmers markets, festivals, and street events throughout the city for all sorts of people to discover all sorts of poetry. We also sell zines, books, and magazines created or produced locally and by Oxford writers and artists. Join us to discover poetry and take home some inspiring words!Poetry Library in bike shelter
