bitch media zine library

The people behind Bitch magazine have set up a zine library in Portland, USA:


That’s right, we’ve added a zine library to the 1,000-plus books already in our collection. We’re excited to watch our zine collection grow, and we can’t wait to share the breadth of self-published feminist materials. There are a couple of ways that you can get involved with our zine library:

1) You can send us your zines. Whether you’re a zinemaker yourself or you have a zine collection that you’d like to send to a new home, we’d love to include your zines in our library. If you’ve got a big collection to ship, contact me at ashley@b-word.org. Otherwise, just write “zine donation” on your envelope and send it to us at 4930 NE 29th Avenue, Portland, OR 97211. To sweeten the deal, I will be reviewing zines that show up in our mailbox.

2) Come to the library and check some zines out! Again, we’re open from 5-8pm Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the library can also be opened by appointment during weekday hours.
