How To Obtain Al‑Anon and Alateen Literature

Both Minneapolis Al‑Anon/Alateen Information Services and St. Paul Al‑Anon/Alateen Intergroup carry an almost complete selection of Conference Approved Literature in English, although occasionally an item may be out of stock. We also carry a few titles in Spanish and can order others on request.  If you can’t make it to either office, you can order by phone from Minneapolis Information Service (952-920-3961).

Purchasing locally is an important way members can support their Twin Cites Al‑Anon and Alateen service organizations financially.
