Salford Zine Library is looking to move into a new home to give wider access to the 1500+ international zines in their collection.
Craig of Salford Zine Library is currently trying to raise funds for its new home using Sponsume. You can view the pitch here:
Since the exhibition came to a close at Salford Museum and Art Gallery the library has been homeless. I have been desperately seeking a new place for it to reside. Looking for a pleasant and safe environment where people can comfortably read and peruse the archive at their own leisure. After much toing and froing looking for the right spaceI have been offered a permanent room at the Nexus Art Café in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
In its new home the archive will be accessible seven days a week from mid May but as you can see the space needs work. With your help and the skills of master craftsman Andy Yates – a man who says he can drill through anything - we can transform the space into the ideal new home we have long since dreamed of.
Our aim is to raise one thousand pounds by the end of April 2012.
The money raised will go towards the building of shelves, comfy seats to sit down and read, lighting and giving the walls a nice lick of paint.
When the space is clean and safe we can deliver workshops as part of our educational programme and you can read you favourite zines in calm creative comfort.
