Sunday, July 15, 2012

For those of you who have visited us in the past couple of years have seen the incredible space we get to share with several other projects, making up the 27 Social Centre. Recently, we’ve been able to expand into the front part of the building and the Denver Zine Library is excited to move up to the front space, shared with the Denver Community Health Collective (check them out here: http://www.denverhealthcollective.com/). What’s better than an afternoon massage and reading zines? I can’t think of anything either.

We’d love some extra help moving the DZL, especially since we have to bring everything outside and around the corner to access the new entrance to our space. If you have some time, even 30 minutes, please come by between 11am and 3pm on Sunday, July 15. We’ll be moving boxes, shelves and our other furniture. It might take us a week or two to start getting settled, so please be patient while we get the zines back on the shelves.

The monthly Secret Café benefits the 27 Social Centre, a radical community space committed to providing Denver with a location for our organizations, meetings, classes, art, music, history, libraries and much more.
