Zines, Records and Rock n Roll: Alternative Media in Libraries

Zines are independently self-published pamphlets covering a large number of topics and formats. Readers love the personal quirkiness of zines and the idiosyncrasies of the medium encourage involvement and an open-minded approach to life. Last year, the Jacksonville Public Library began a circulating collection of zines and they will present a hands-on seminar about how to create and promote a zine collection in your library. Special emphasis will be given to utilizing zines for outreach and programming for children and 20 – 40 year old adults.

Trainers: Andrew Coulon, Joshua Jubinsky, Matthew Moyer and Jessica Whittington from Jacksonville Public Library
Date: Wednesday, August 25
Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 noon
Location: NEFLIN in Orange Park
