No problem Jen. I recently moved from Denver to Hollywood...so I haven't found any rad libraries here in L.A. but my friend in Colorado donated hers to the Denver Zine library....http://www.denverzinelibrary.org/
I'm trying to talk her into getting back into it with no avail.

I've seen an old post about this library:
UCLA Arts Library
Darby Romeo Zine Collection, c/o Arts Library Special Collections
YRL Rm 22478, UCLA 951575, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1575.
Phone 310.825.7253 Archivist: Julie Graham.
"Collection consists of privately printed and distributed arts and literary magazines. The inventory is available via the Online Archive of California. All zines are non-circulating and must be used in our reading room. We accept any zine so long as it doesn't contain perishable contents (i.e. food). Due to space restrictions, we cannot accept multiple copies of a single issue."

Hey Only For The Open-Minded Press sounds cool. I've been to The Smell and have been meaning to check (g)out the Pehrspace

Jen! My friend Champ and I have started a local mobile distro (a book mobile for zines!). We started collecting people's zine donations to keep at our house as a distro, but realized its more effective finding people that waiting for people to find us. We have a bike trailer and ride around to different venues (The Smell, Pehrspace, Echo Curio, etc.) and set up so that people have things to read outside of venues between bands. I would be so completely thrilled if you donated some of your stash to us!!
You can write us back and I can meet up with you, or if you send us donations and we can send you back a reimbursement for the shipping.

Does anyone know of any zine libraries in the LA area? I have a TON of old zines that I'd like to donate from the ol' distro days. I was going to ship them up to the IRPC in Portland but that seems like such a waste if we have a resource down here that could use them.

Chicken-Head #28 is out and about. Several spots in the Valley and two in LA: The bicycle Kitchen and Orange 20 is where you can pick them up.

Same here. #28 just got sent to the printer.

That too. I've never really gotten into ezines so I tend to forget their existence.
