    Our celebration will be on July 31 instead of the 21st. So far we just have a save the date. More info to come.
  • And here’s an awesome 1″ button sheet made by Stephanie Mannheim: izld2013-buttons.tifizld2013-buttons.tif
    This is what they look like:

(The Barnard Library text appears on the side of the button. It isn’t visible unless you’re looking for it, so the button should be usable by all.)

Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh – will be on 7/21, self-service collaborative zine table for people to share their hometown (Pittsburgh) love and visions for change with each other (Questions = What do you love about Pittsburgh? What would make it even better?). Will have templates for 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2 ” pages that people can fill. We’ll mail copies of the group zine to participants after the event.

Alphabet City in Auckland New Zealand – we’ll host a library open day (noon – 4pm) to celebrate! Come along to learn more about our zine library and we’ll share some info about other zine libraries in Auckland, too. We’ll give a brief talk about the library (at 12:30) and current catalogueing efforts. Come by, explore and read some zines. You can even try your hand at catalogueing a few zines and be a zine librarian for the afternoon.
