Bird's nest zine library
Bird's Nest Zine Library is a not-for-profit Anarchist zine lending library.
The collection includes zines, comics, chapbooks and some indie press magazines. Currently the catalogue contains nearly 700 publications, most of which are political, music and perzines. Their focus is on increasing community awareness, recruiting volunteers and adding more zines to the inventory, particularly local and regional zines. Bird's Nest Zine Library functions as a collective and is completely run by volunteers. They are committed to providing zines and zine making resources to our community at no cost.
