Zine Library

colorful drawing of the word ZINES

We have a zine collection!

Pronounced like magazine—without the mag—zines are self-published, independently made, usually photocopied, and have a small print run. Zines rose to prominence in the 70s, but one could argue that they have been around since the invention of Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press in 1439.

Zine content can be personal, political, niche, artistic, or visual—there are no rules! We have zines for all ages by local and international zinesters. You can browse the collection at any of our eight zine library locations, or search our catalog to place a hold and have your zines delivered to your nearest branch.
