[#TAKEOVER] Another reason I love my job is because I am able to curate our zine collection at our new #LBPLZineLibrary!
This public library circulating zine collection is free to take home (25 at a time for three weeks at a time) with your library card! The collection was brought into existence last November, and we already have over 400 unique titles cataloged. You may go to www.lbpl.org to search our full collection under call number “ZINE.” This year I acquired zines from the Portland Zine Symposium, the OC Zine Fest, the LB Zine Fest, the TJ Zine Fest, the LA Art Book Fair, the LA Zine Fest and an independent publishing house in Matanzas, Cuba!
We also host zine workshops in the #LBPLStudio maker space if you’d like to learn how to make your very own zine! www.lbpl.org/studio @LBPL_Librarian
We’re letting a few camera-obsessed POST readers take over our Instagram for a week to showcase how they live #LongBeach. This week, zinester, public librarian and bookworm @zebraradar shows you her #LifeInLB. #📖 #📚 (at Long Beach Public Library)
