The zines are here! Zine Week at the Lopez Library

What are zines?  Zines are alternative and radical literature, comix, and independent publications. Pronounced “zeen” – short for magazine or fanzine.  Anyone can publish a zine, including YOU! Got a topic you love? Got something to say about it? Come make zines with us!  Open to all adults and teens.

October 16th – 27th Stop by the library to see our display of local and not-so-local zines. Yes, you can touch and read them! Go here for a list of some of the zines on display: 2017 Lopez Zine Week Collection
