The City Library Zine Collection (2007-) at Melbourne City Library, Victoria, Australia, the collection was launched in July 2007 with a start-up collection of approximately 130 zines and an interactive exhibition. The exhibition featured clumps of zines pegged to lengths of twine strung about 2 feet apart. Library patrons were invited to take the zines down from the gallery wall, look through them and then peg them back into the exhibition. Baskets of pegs were left in the gallery for zinesters to donate their creations to the City Library Zine Collection by adding them directly to the exhibition itself.

The City Library also hosts a zine club called City Library Street Press.
