Breakdown Book Collective & Community Space seeks to educate, empower, and strengthen the Denver area community. Breakdown is a source of ideas, information, and literature marginalized or ignored by mainstream outlets. In addition, this space is a community resource in which artistic, educational, political, and cultural endeavors are welcomed, encouraged, and shared. Here you will find radical books, a lending library, video library, free computer use and internet access, space for various organizations to meet, and a variety of information about upcoming community events.
