Program Description

Event Details

Join the library for a zine afternoon! Read some queer zines; make one yourself or with friends and run off a couple copies to share. We'll have supplies, prompts and ideas, hydration, pronoun buttons, and company. Drop by anytime from 2:00 to 4:00 and stay as long as you like.

While anyone may attend, this event and our sample zines are geared toward adults.

*In case of inclement weather, this program will move to our meeting room.
