That darn cold is messing up everything.

Hey zine lovers,

We hate to be closed two times in a row, but due to a lovely burst pipe at the Tranzac, the building is closed and thus is staffed hours today. We’re currently unsure about what the status will be tomorrow, so hold tight as we find out more info.

If you want to make a donation to the Tranzac to help with the clean-up, that would be much appreciated. Cash and credit are accepted in person at the club, or find the “Donate” button on the website (http://www.tranzac.org/).
Keep warm.

It’s cold out there

Hey zine lovers,

Given that the weather in Toronto today is super cold (temperatures with the windchill lower than -30 degrees!), we want y’all to stay home and keep warm and cozy. Staffed hours are cancelled for today, and will resume on Tuesday when it will be less bitterly cold. Take care of yourselves!

– TZL staff

Hello zine lovers,

The Toronto Zine Library will be taking a short holiday coinciding with other culturally significant holidays. We will be closed from Tuesday, December 23 to January 3, 2015. Regular staffed hours will resume Sunday, January 4 at 1-3 p.m.

Note that Drawing Club will be affected by this closure, and will resume in the new year.

If you need to get in contact with us, we will be periodically checking our e-mail – torontozinelibrary@gmail.com

Looking into the new year, look out for postings of our annual potluck/AGM – we’d love to see you join us!

Take care, stay safe, and enjoy your holiday season!
