You're welcome to listen or play or both!

---Who are we?---
Jura Books is a not-for-profit, collectively run, anarchist space located at 440 Parramatta Rd, Petersam, Sydney. We have been going for 31 years.

---Bookshop---

We have thousands of books you won't find anywhere else - anarchist, enviro, feminist, libertarian socialist, history, fiction and more.

---Events---
We show films, have gigs, spoken word nights and political forums. All are welcome to come along and enjoy these cheap, alternative events. Some of our recent events include: a Zapatista book launch and video link up, a womyn's hip-hop show, and a political art exhibition.

---Organising space---

Jura is a base and resource for many activist groups, and we also try to prefigure the world we want to create. Recently we've hosted an eco-workers group, a womyn's group and Food Not Bombs. We also run an organic food co-op.

---Library---
Our recently renovated library is a unique resource of left-libertarian books and journals that you won't find anywhere else. We also maintain an archive of political posters.

---Opening hours---
Wed, Thurs and Fri: 2pm-7pm. Sat and Sun: 12-5pm
