You can download the ZIM file here: (Snapshot of library from April 2, 2021)

Once you download the file, you will need to open it using software like Kiwix:

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?
