Thank you!!!!

Posted by Andrew Coulon on November 21, 2011

The Zine Committee would like to thank everyone that came out to the 2011 Zine Symposium on Saturday. We had a great crowd for the panel discussion and keynote featuring musician, activist and zine author Kathleen Hanna.

We’d like to give a special round of applause to our panelists Shelton Hull, Adee Roberson, Mark Creegan, Travis Fristoe, Kathleen Hanna and moderator Duncan Barlow.  Their insights into the creative process and personal experiences were very inspiring.

A special thank you goes out to Kathleen Hanna and her team.  We are glad she was able to visit Jacksonville Public Library and we appreciate her willingness to share her experiences and how zines have shaped her activism and career as a musician. It was an excellent and challenging presentation.

Thank you goes out to Clay Doran (Squid Dust) for the wonderful posters.  Will there be a second printing?  Only he will know for sure.

We’d like to thank everyone that worked on the event and contributed to making it a success, without whom the event could not have happened.  Thanks to everyone who spread the word and posted info on blogs, Facebook and Twitter about the event. That was a great help.  An especially big thank you goes to out the Community Relations and Marketing team, Adult Programming and the Conference center staff.  Thanks for everything!

If you would like to seem more programs like this one, send us your feedback or better yet, checkout some zines from the collection.  The library relies on community support and one of the best things you can do is checkout books, CDs, zines, DVDs and other materials in the library.  Patron usage and feedback helps us determine future goals for collection development and programming, so please use the library and enjoy what it has to offer.

JPL has some items available for checkout by the above panelists:

Shelton Hull – Section 8 zine | Ink 19

Travis Fristoe – America? zine and other writings

Kathleen Hanna – Le Tigre albums | Bikini Kill: The Singles

We hope to have video of the event available soon!!

Darth Vader Reads Everything Dies v.6 by Box Brown

Posted by Andrew Coulon on November 4, 2011

We set up a table at Art Walk last week and Darth Vader came by to check out the Zine Collection.  It was probably the title that caught his eye, but we think he really enjoyed Everything Dies v.6 by Box Brown.

If you missed our International Zine Month kickoff at Art Walk, shame on you! We had a passel of new zines, our brand new Read Zines poster, and live sets from Willie Evans Jr. and Paten Locke! Much fun was had, and many library cards were waved in the air.  More Zine Month goodness to come!

Paten Locke and Willie Evans Jr live at Jacksonville Public Library!

Posted by Andrew Coulon on July 6, 2011

Paten Locke and Willie Evans Jr live at Artwalk!

The Jacksonville Public Library Zine Collection presents Paten Locke and Willie Evans Jr live in the Main Library on July 6th! We’re kicking off International Zine Month right with a combination of independent publishing and independent music! Since before Asamov these two talented performers have been setting the standard for artists coming out of Jacksonville. Touring all over America and Europe, these two are some of the most intriguing live acts you will find. From video manipulation, to record scratching, to the art of MCing, to doing all that at the same time! You can’t find anything better than Paten Locke and Willie Evans Jr! My word on that! Plus it’s free! And we’ll have a bunch of brand new zines available for checkout as well!

We’ll be in what was formerly Shelby’s Café, right near the Laura Street entrance. The Main Library is at the corner of Laura and Duval, across from Hemming Plaza. Event starts promptly at 6:30p.m.

Memorial For Alan Justiss

Posted by Matthew Moyer on March 9, 2011

It would be an excellent idea if you take a few minutes out of your busy Saturday afternoon and head down to the Five Points Theatre to say goodbye to a titan of poetry, self-publishing, chapbooks, zines, and spoken word in our fair city. You’d better believe that the Zine Committee will be there.

Where and When:

Five Points Theatre
1028 Park Street
1:30-3:30pm
This event is free of charge.

Joe Berg Seminar

Posted by Josh Jubinsky on February 11, 2011

Thanks again to the students of Jacksonville’s Joe Berg Society for being so interested in the Zine Collection!  Hopefully now we’ve got another 80 rad teens stoked on the collection and the library.  They had really good questions and checked out some of my favorite zines.

For more information on our new favorite group of high school students, go here.
