This is a much overdue update that we’ve been meaning to share.
We’ve been closed to the public since March 2020, primarily because of COVID, but also because the TRANZAC has been undertaking some renovations that included our library space. While we’ve been closed, we have been continuing to slowly work through updating our catalogue by going through our collection, scanning covers, and adding new metadata for better search functions. This is an ongoing, long-term project because we have so many zines to review!
And to give you a little preview, here’s a few interesting zines we recently catalogued:
The Worst #3 – A Compilation Zine on Grief and Loss [special interest]
Barcode Mao Zedong – a flipbook by Scott Blake [art]
Phantastic – by Kevin Guthrie [art]
Crackers + Honey #9 – by Karissa [art]
As always, be sure to check our catalogue, we’re adding more details to our existing collection regularly. Which is why we’re also a bit behind on processing some of the many amazing donations we continue to receive. But we’re working on it!
And just to give you a little sneak peek at our ongoing renovations….
There’s a new carpet! New shelves! It’s very very exciting! And we are planning to reopen to the public soon as well, hopefully in time for Canzine Toronto!
