The Working Class Movement Library is a radical library founded by working class activists, Ruth and Eddie Frow. We provide access to our collections and events to encourage working people to learn from and interpret their history. We are a charitable trust and work with the support of volunteers to help us to achieve our mission. Our library and archive collection includes books, pamphlets, posters, photographs, banners and other memorabilia that tell the story of working class struggle and campaigning.
We have an active volunteer programme, with volunteers helping with the collection, events, digitization, tours and the library garden. We are looking for new volunteers to help make our collection, our building and our activities more accessible.


We provide volunteering opportunities for local people. 

We allow free and discounted access to our meeting and event spaces. 

We celebrate the working class of Britain and beyond and document our shared history for future generations.
