Zine Collection

About the collection

Zines are printed publications with a handmade, DIY feel that are self-published in limited quantities and are not driven by commercial profit. We collect zines by and for our communities to encourage creativity and discovery at the library.

The library’s zine collection is current and local and seeks out new voices, with a focus on zines produced in or about Minnesota.

The collection covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • Activism
  • Anarchism
  • Feminism
  • Gender identity and expression
  • Mental health
  • Queer community
