Glasgow Zine Library Opening Party

You are invited to the grand opening of the new Glasgow Zine Library, a library and community arts space located in Govanhill on the south side of Glasgow!

Glasgow Zine Library Opening Party

About Glasgow Zine Library Opening Party

It is a growing archive of self-published works, with about 700 zines currently in the collection. The space itself is an inviting and accessible area for reading and spending time, as well as running a year-long programme of events to celebrate the ethos of Do It Yourself (DIY) culture.

In June we ran a crowdfunder campaign in the hopes that we could raise some money to build a permanent home. Thanks to the support of everyone from the community, we were able to sign a lease.

Since then, we've been working away getting things ready. We've dealt with everything shop fittings, electrics, a little bit of plastering and perhaps some ghosts, but the end is in sight, and with it our very exciting and very bright future!

Tucked away in the heart of Glasgow's southside, we're very excited to have a hub from which we can run our workshops, talks, screenings, as well as have a space where people can chill and get inspired.

So come on down on the 28th and say hello, read a zine and have a drink, and make yourself at home.

There will be a donation bar, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as a raffle!

Sponsorship and raffle prizes for this event comes from:
Category Is Books
Glad Cafe
Risotto
Tantrum Donuts
MadeByWomen Zines
Mob Handed Press
Govanhill Baths
AND MORE!

Please note: GZL does not currently have a wheelchair accessible bathroom.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Zine Library Opening Party are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
