The library now offers an offline HTML version of the library for your reading pleasure.

It's via a ZIM file, which allows the library to be downloaded in a small 180mb file and read offline.

You can download the ZIM file here: (Snapshot of library from April 2, 2021) https://media.theanarchistlibrary.org/theanarchistlibrary_2021-04-02.zim

Once you download the file, you will need to open it using software like Kiwix: https://www.kiwix.org/en/

You can read more about the ZIM file format here: https://wiki.openzim.org/wiki/OpenZIM

A shorter version of this announcement can be found on the library bookshelf mirrors list: https://bookshelf.theanarchistlibrary.org/library/librarian-mirrors-of-library-en

There's also the option of the torrent which isn't the most up to date but includes a variety of formats to open individually.

I got it installed just fine on Arch, it's neat and seems to be well maintained. Fucking wild that I can download the entire anarchist library in 180MB. What's next, gravity defying cars running on plastic?
