Everybody Make Zines!!!1

Hello friends,

As you know, it’s International Zine Month and we’re going to celebrate with a two nights of zine-making workshops! These workshops will be informal, more like an opportunity to make zines with some like-minded folks. They will be open to all levels of experience, from total “newbies” who have never made a zine (or perhaps, limited exposure to zines on a whole), to those who have a whole catalogue to their name. We’ll be providing some supplies and support.We just want to see everybody make some zines!

Night 1 will be on Sunday 23 July from 6-9PM in the Toronto Zine Library proper. We regret that our space is not wheelchair accessible.

Night 2 will be on Sunday 30 July from 6-9PM in the Tiki Room, on the first floor of the Tranzac. This night will be wheelchair accessible.

We’ll have a leave-a-zine, take-a-zine table, so please bring your previous work (if applicable) to trade and/or donate to our collection. If you have any lying around, feel free to bring old magazines for graphics.

We’ll also have a potluck, as per standard TZL form. Please refrain from bringing any dishes with peanuts or nuts; also, bring a list of ingredients in case other folks have allergies to other foods. Heck, why not bring the recipe for a recipe swap?

If you have any questions, concerns regarding accessibility or other matters, please let us know at torontozinelibrary@gmail.com

We hope to see you there!

We’re also looking for some more volunteers to join us and help keep us going. Interested? Let us know by shooting us an email at torontozinelibrary@gmail.com. We may not be the fastest at responding, but we will get back to you. Come get involved.

Just want to visit and read zines? Staffed hours are Sundays from 1-3PM and Tuesdays from 6-8PM. You are welcome.

Hope to see you soon!

Easter Sunday = no staffed hours

Hello, zine lovers.

We’ve decided to cancel staffed hours this Easter Sunday (27 March). Take that time to enjoy family, go for a walk/run/bike ride, eat festive or unfestive foods, read some zines in your own personal collection, or maybe even work on your zine. You do whatever you want/need to do during that time, Easter-related or not.

Staffed hours will resume on Tuesday 29 March at 6 PM.

Take care
