Megabus - http://ca.megabus.com/default.aspx

It depends on how far in advance you book, and when they happen to be offering deals. But sometimes it's 10$.

just and FYI for anyone who sold zines at This Ain't the Rosedale Library - they were all sold to a new store that opened up in Parkdale called The River Trading Company (1418 Queen Street West, just east of Landsdowne between West Lodge and O'Hara) So whether you were paid for them or not, they are now for sale, and cheap-o.

Happy International Zine Month!


To celebrate, the Toronto Zine Library is participating in the 24 hour zine challenge and we would love for you to join us! We are hosting a kick off event this Wednesday, July 28th starting at 5pm and going strong until the Tranzac Club closes.


What is the 24 hour zine challenge, you ask?
A yearly event where one attempts to make a 24 page zine from start to finish in 24 hours. From initial idea right through to photocopying/collating/stapling your zine. More information, list of this year's participants and sign up can be found here: http://24hourzines.com/

(Please note that you dont *have* to register and/or send your zine in when its finished. We encourage you participate to whatever degree you are most comfortable with. Or, you are welcome to just come and hang out at the TZL and cheer participants on!)


Bring your ideas and if youre able a snack to share while we hang out, listen to music, and get a start on our 24 hour zines! Some supplies will be available (paper, glue, scissors, magazine clippings, a couple of typewriters, a long arm stapler) but please do bring your favourite or necessary zine making supplies. Conveniently, there is a 24 hour Kinkos a half-block away!

Also, similar to the event folks at the Independent Pubishing Resource Center (http://www.iprc.org/) in Portland Oregon held a few days ago, we will be streaming our 24 hour zine challenge event live! If you're unable to join us, bookmark http://www.ustream.tv/channel/toronto-zine-library-24hr-zine-challe... and tune in on Wednesday starting at 5pm EST and participate alongside us from wherever you may be.

Ok, to recap:

WHEN: wednesday july 28th, 5pm until close
WHERE: the toronto zine library -- 2nd floor of the tranzac club -- 292 brunswick st. just south of bloor. close to spadina subway station
COST: free!
WHAT: 24 hour zine challenge kick off
BRING: yourself, your friends, snacks, creativity, zine making supplies, ideas

Facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=138008569562984&index=1

Holler at us if you have any additional questions or concerns. We regret that the TZL is not a wheelchair accessible space.
