Welcome to the t. Hill esoteric LIbrary
T. H.E.L. is open to the public!
Please note the library is closed until further notice as we build new shelves and construct a new area for consciousness research. We hope to have the library back open by April 2013.
Our book and media collection are available for rental and perusal during library hours. We also host lectures, workshops and screenings. Our mission is to stimulate discussion between areas of esoteric knowledge both old and new. We welcome patrons, donations, and proposals for events. Please join us as we continue to investigate the far reaches of knowledge and experience!
Our library is completely nonprofit and is maintained by private donations only. If you are interested in borrowing or donating please visit the appropriate page.
The sauna is closed. Take a cold bath!
Lots of new books have arrived! Donations, purchases and free books! Check out some of the examples below!
T.H.E.L. has a special section for handmade books and comics. We do not check these out but are happy to provide an archive of special material for our library guests. Please send us your homemade books, zines, and comics.
The T. Hill Esoteric Library has thousands of members in the form of WORMS and BEES! Our worm bin is a living section of the library, if you would like to see how a worm compost bin operates stop by during library hours. We would be happy to give you a tour of the poop factory and answer any questions you might have. The bees are not as accessible, but if you are very interested we can show you the hive.
The library is open every Sunday from 12-4. Enter in the alley door. Email or call 410 945 7825 to make sure we are open on any particlar Sunday.
