The Toronto Zine Library & Archive (TZL) is run by a collective of zine readers, zine makers and librarians who are looking to make zines more accessible in Toronto.* We believe that zines are an important medium of communication, and that they should be cherished, protected, and promoted. Our aim is to do this through our public collection of zines, conducting related workshops at our physical library and abroad, and by holding events that promote zines as a method of open communication and free expression.
We hope to see you at our events, or just browsing through our collection!
As the library is upstairs in the TRANZAC, accessibility is limited. We can offer appointments to view requested zines in rooms downstairs, please be in touch for accessibility requests.
TZL has had its home generously provided within the TRANZAC since 2006.
We are always happy to accept donations and zine submissions!
* Unfortunately, due to space restrictions we are no longer holding duplicate materials. We are happy to take duplicates but will likely donate them elsewhere, or will include them in our TZL grab bags which we give away to the community (with a suggested PWYC donation in exchange).
You can donate in-person at the library space, or by mail:
Toronto Zine Library c/o TRANZAC 292 Brunswick Ave Toronto, ON M5S 2M7
