Scarborough Zine Library

Fancy a Zine workshop at SFS?
Great! Check it out!!

Want to find out about underground self published comics and DIY art? Scarborough Zine Library, formed by artists/zine librarians Joel Hague and Nathan Wackett with support from Crescent Arts, is an open and accessible archive of local (and also wide-ranging) zines and small indie publications.

We’ll be hosting a drop in Zinemaking workshop from 11-3pm on Sunday 21st April. Visitors will have the chance to create their own Zine, have a read of some of the collection, donate their work and find out what the library is all about.

So what are zines?

Good question! As explained by Wikipedia… “A zine (/ˈziːn/ zeen; an abbreviation of fanzine, or magazine) is most commonly a small circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images usually reproduced via photocopier. Zines are the product of either a single person or of a very small group, and are popularly photocopied into physical prints for circulation.”

The Library features a comprehensive range of Zines from diverse voices and ranging topics, from perzines to punk, feminism to fanzines, queer zines to publications about social/political activism and so much more…

We currently have an archive of around 300 zines and we always welcome new donations, with the archive is always growing, we also welcome interactions for zine swaps/trades with other zine communities and archives.
