We’re Expanding!

Posted by Matthew Moyer on May 29, 2010

Largely due to last month’s auspicious release of 100 new zines into our collection, we’ve grown too big for our trusty display shelf by the Popular Reference Desk.  So we’ve moved! But only a few feet! Here’s the deal, from now on the familiar “Zine Island” will be devoted to all of the new zines that we’ve added to the collection over the last couple of months.

Meanwhile, all of your old favorites will be right over your shoulder. The zines won a gunfight with Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey and claimed some of the erstwhile Western shelving as their own. More new titles to come!

FLA 2010 Presentation

FLA 2010 Thinking Outside the Book

We had the pleasure of presenting at the Florida Library Association’s Annual Conference this last weekend and we were smashing if I do say so myself.  We presented about how to start a zine collection and about all the programs and outreach we have done.  Hopefully some other libraries in Florida will start zine collections.   Here is a link to our presentation.

Stay tuned for more info as it develops.

New Zines for April 2010

Enjoy these for now (there are some real treasures), and next month we’ll drown you in new zines. Promise!

We’re old school

Posted by Andrew Coulon on April 2, 2010

What can we say?  We like paper zines, old music and one of us even collects stamps.  But we’re getting with it.  Notice the links to our new Twitter and Facebook pages on the right.  Yeah, I knew you’d be impressed.

Zine Mobile At RAM

Posted by Josh Jubinsky on March 24, 2010

We’ll be seeing you at the Riverside Arts Market this weekend!  The Zine Committee will be there via bike with the Zine Mobile in tow.  It’s a great chance to meet us and talk zine.  And you can stock up on your favorite zines, for free of course, with your library card.  If you don’t have a library card stop by the table and get one – that’s free too.   Our table is located right across from Bike Jax’s valet bike parking.  So park that bike you just got tuned up at Zen Cog and come say hello!

Isn’t RAM becoming a great place for one-stop shopping of what? I know it’s where i get my fresh veggie every weekend.  Now it’s a place to check out zines from the library. And remember, you can always return library items to any JPL Library.

But what else besides zines? Well we still have some copies of our limited Black Kids zine posters.  Even though those are flyin’ off the stacks, we’ll have some to giveaway at the Art Market.   And what’s that? We have awesome buttons to give away too? Yes, indeed.  See you Saturday.
