International Zine Month 2015

July is fast approaching, which means zine libraries and lovers are gearing up for International Zine Month activities. Alex Wrekk has once again created a calendar of suggested ziney activities for every day of the month.
Suggestions include ordering from a zine distro (we suggest Brown Recluse Zine Distro that specializes in zines by people of colour), writing letters to zine makers (there's a letter-writing event coming up at Toronto's first post office on July 14), leaving zines in public for others to find and visiting your local zine library (come see us!).

Throughout International Zine Month, the Learning Zone will be open Monday-Friday, 10am-6pm and you can stop by any time to look at our zine collection and make a zine. Just ask a staff member for access to our craft materials. We have lots of collage materials, paper, pencils, staplers and other art supplies for your zine making needs.

We will also be profiling a different zine in our collection online every day, so check back regularly throughout July.
