Bard Zine Library
The Bard Zine Library was launched by Bard College students Lauren Martin and Elissa Nelson in the 90s. In the mid-90s, it was hailed as the largest zine library on the East Coast. It resided in the basement of the Old Gym, Bard's student autonomous zone, until its closing in 2004. The library is loosely alphabetized and organized by category. It is open afternoons and evenings weekdays and can now be found within the Root Cellar, in the basement of McVicker (behind Stone Row). Zines don't leave the building, but can be read comfortably in the student-run vegan organic coffee shop.
