Zine Libraries Virtual Meetup set
for Tues Sept 10 at 7 PM EDT / 6 PM CDT / 4 PM PDT

Book mark the following link for information on how to connect to our meetup session.
Instructions and links about how to connect will be updated on this page:

http://zinelibraries.info/events/virtualmeetups

Our intention is to reach out to people that want to connect in-between unconferences. We are especially interested in connecting with people that work with homegrown zine libraries and aren’t necessarily able to make it out to our events.

Hope to see you soon!

Join us for a Virtual Meetup for Barefoot Zine Librarians

The zine collection that will be the basis of Emergent Zine Library

This is a photo of the zine collection in my living room that will soon turn into a pop up zine library experiment in Kansas City, MO.

During the 2013 Zine Librarian’s Unconference, I became aware of a desire to connect more with the zine librarians group. I wanted more opportunities to share support, resources, and solidarity with other people who are making zine libraries happen. I also knew I might not be able to attend the next conference in person, and this made me desire more online possibilities for sharing and support.

Milo also took interest in this idea, and he contacted me about arranging our first zine librarian’s virtual meetup.

The result is that we will attempt to use google hangout to host a virtual meetup for barefoot zine librarians.¬†“Barefoot” libraries and librarians are ones¬†that are usually autonomous and not affiliated with public or academic¬†libraries. Infoshops, Community Centers, zine libraries in your garage – they are all relevant!

Right now we are choosing the dates. You can help by passing the word onto other barefoot zine librarians and marking your availability on the doodle poll.
