Our collection has over 6,500 zines. The collection spans 6 decades and all manner of genre or subject are represented. Our zines have been acquired from around the world. While the majority were produced in the United States, and many locally in the Twin Cities, our collection includes zines from Japan, Australia, South Africa and many other countries.

While we don’t lend out zines, everyone is welcome to browse the collection. Access is available whenever the library is open.
