The Search for Zines Begins Here

Angi Brzycki, Senior Librarian, Digitization & Special Collections,
colorful collection of zines

Did you know that we have over 1200 zines in our catalog? That number will continue to grow as we regularly add zines to our collection. Seven of our libraries host zine collections that you can browse, borrow, and read:

If you can't make it to any of these locations, you can find a zine in our catalog, place a hold, and have it sent to your local library. Here’s how.

  • Step 1

Go to our catalog and click on the Advanced Search function.
