Toronto Zine Library

Its December! I cant wait till it snows. I thought I would let you know that I have been volunteering with the TZL for a little while now. For those of you that have never been, or even knew it existed...let me fill you in. Its located in the Tranzac, on the second floor, in a little room. The best part, its full of zines!!! It is not the most glamorous, but its pretty great place to hangout, relax, and read some zines. My fave categories are: perzines/litzines/comics, if you havent read "ghost pine" you should! There are so many reasons to come by the TZL, during staffed hours. One good reason being, to hangout with me...but really, you can borrow zines and take them home with you! all you have to do is come by and sign up for a membership its five bucks. Totally worth it! And if dont feel like forking over the five dollars, feel free to just come on down and browse through everything. Lately during the staffed hours, I bring something crafty to work on, and sometimes I will even bring a snack, and wander downstairs to purchase a lovely beverage from the Tranzac bar. Recently I have been doing staffed hours on Wednesday's 6:00pm-8:00pm regularly. So come by and say "hi" stay a lil while and hangout. And if you make zines, why dont you donate one of yours to be included in TZL. So I thought I would share with all of you the awesomeness that is the TZL, maybe I will your faces there soon...if you cant come by, at least visit the website and blog.
