Zines and Zine Libraries:

A zine (pronounced 'zeen' as in magazine) is a small-circulation,

Do it Yourself booklet or magazine.

A zine can be about absolutely anything.


Zine Making: A no pressure opportunity for creativity, a chance to connect with others and to discover the many possibilities of Zines. Sparking ideas, doodling, drawing, collaging,& printing while sharing and exploring the complexities of being human.

Zine making can also be understood as a form of craftivism - a worldwide movement that sits at the intersection of craft and activism.


Zine reading: There are no distinctions between the readers and writers of zines, with zine reading encouraging zine writing, in a circular process of exchange and dialogue. The library enables people to deposit a zine, to borrow one and bring it back or to pass it on.


The Morecambe & Lancaster Zine Library was Created by:

Jill Anderson from the Mad Zines Research Project, CCrAMHP & Asylum magazine.

Charlotte Done, illustrator & director at Morecambe Community Riso Press.
