a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I work in the library at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. A few years back, some students had started a zine collective on campus & were able to start a zine collection in the library here, but as is often the nature of student groups, as those initial students graduated, the group sort of disappeared & the collection has sat a bit neglected. So anyway, I'm trying to revamp it this semester (possibly making this into a project for a first year student or two). We have a decent sized collection right now, but it would be great to add to it.
So! Here I am, asking for donations from anyone who would be willing to send a zine(s). Any genres are fine. Unfortunately, I'm working with a $0 budget, so I can't exactly buy zines right now. If you're interested in donating, below is the mailing address:
Johnson Library/Serials Dept.
