8 years and going strong!
The Denver Zine Library (DZL) first opened its doors on December 5, 2003 thanks to the hard work of some dedicated volunteers. Since then, the DZL has moved locations a few times and is now housed in the incredible 27 Social Centre. We are an all-volunteer run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit lending library with over 10,000 donated and cataloged zines on our shelves! We’ve been grateful for the amazing support over the years from zinesters, community members and rad touring folks who have come through and really promoted the power and importance of zines. Read more about the DZL’s history!
The power of zines
Over the years, the Denver Zine Library has hosted events and workshops, teaching youth, students and community members how to give power to their own voices. When so many of us do not see ourselves reflected in mainstream media, zines give us the ability to tell our own stories and to personally connect with other people. This connection is what makes this medium so exciting! We can find folks who share our experiences and our interests.
We need your financial support to help maintain the DZL as well as give us the ability to plan the next Denver Zine Fest! The Denver Zine Fest has brought together local zinesters, artists, poets as well as folks from around the country to showcase, sell and trade their zines.
What We Need & What You Get
The DZL is asking for your financial support to maintain and expand what we can offer our community, both in the Denver area as well as the zine community at large. Sponsor a zine workshop (at community centers, libraries and classrooms) for $50. Cover the cost of one month’s rent for $100. Help us raise at least $500 towards the planning of the next Denver Zine Fest! Spread the word to your friends and pen pals!
For your fabulous support, check out the perks on the right of this page!
