a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Hey everyone, I'm starting a zine library in Providence RI. Providence is a really artsy and good community for this, and I live there and am a zine maker! Yay! I have most likely already found an interim place to house my zine library collection. It's going to be called "Use Your Words" Zine Library and I'm really excited. We're also going to have a high school after school/summer program for creating zines as it's important for me to give back in that way since I got into zines in a really big way starting when I was in high school.
If you'd like to send zines as a donation for this purpose, please send me a private message, and comment here with any further questions or ideas! Any advice from those who have started non profit organizations, businesses, distros, shops, etc are greatly appreciated as I have little idea of what I'm doing after I move on from the interim house of the library.
As it stands I'll be in a community space for a while, but my dream is to eventually have a storefront for it and be the director of the after school program and non profit (and thus have a small amount of income generated from it, enough to survive so I can devote most my time to it).

I do have a steadily growing giveaway pile at my library. Email your postal to email@example.com. Also, please join the Zine Librarians discussion list if you're so inclined. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/zinelibrarians There are people from all different types of libraries on it.
Luke from the zine store Sticky in Melbourne, Australia here. I've got some zines I'd love to donate to your library. Let me know the address to mail them to and I will put them in the mail. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hey Everyone, thanks for your donations so far!
We've gotten a lot of great stuff so far thanks to you're generosity.
Just wanted to bump this topic so if anyone would like to know they can donate stuff to a brand new library soon to have a location, they can!
If you want I can send my zin to you. Tell me your postal address, please.
