Zine Apothecary is closing

13 Aug

Most of the Zine Apothecary collection has been moved to other collections–a big part of it going to the Mpls Community and Technical College library. If you’re looking for a library to donate your zine, send it there! You can find the rest of it at the Fly Away Zine Mobile, possibly coming to your state soon!
Here’s MCTC’s address:
Minneapolis Community & Technical College
Library Zine Collection
1501 Hennepin Avenue
Minneapolis, MN 55403


Thanks for your support over this past year, everyone!

The van will be parked immediately outside the main library entrance on the MCTC Plaza at 1501 Hennepin Ave, Mpls, MN 55403.

The week of Sept 26th-30th at various times throughout the week there will be a space set up inside the MCTC Library for people to “Make a Zine” or “Make a Button” or “Talk to a Zinester.” 

Sometime in November, the MCTC Library will dedicate a new locally handcrafted Zine Display Rack and will release 3 specially commissioned zines created just for the MCTC Library Zine Collection.

CALL FOR ZINESTERS: MCTC Library is looking for local zinesters to participate in our zine-focused events and/or to create specially commissioned zines for the library’s collection.
