The Toronto Zine Library

About Us

The Toronto Zine Library is run by a collective of zine readers, zine makers and librarians who are looking to make zines more accessible in Toronto. We believe that zines are still an important medium of communication, and that they should be cherished, protected, and promoted. Our aim to do this through our public collection of zines, conducting related workshops at our physical library and abroad, and by holding events that promote zines as a method of open communication and free expression.

We hope to see you at our events, or just browsing through our collection!

Physical location:
The Toronto Zine Library
2nd Floor, The Tranzac Club
292 Brunswick Ave., Toronto, ON.
{just south of Bloor St., & a few blocks West of Spadina Ave.}

I dropped off some photocopied booklets of the first 1-42 strips of my webcomic at the Tranzac zine library - which I intend to have printed and bound properly once I reach the 150+ mark. The comic is called 'Asylum Squad', and launches by introducing the 4 chief characters as their lives begin to decay, each character a victim of psychotic madness. Here's my website: http://www.asylumsquad.com
