Zine Donations

We are thrilled to accept donations of people's personal zine collections or their individual publications. We're also happy to pay for the latter, and to reimburse shipping costs for the former.

At the moment, we are especially interested in acquiring zines that document riot grrrl, though we are eager to accept zines from any time period or subject as long as they fit our collection policy guidelines. Our guidelines specify that the zines must be written by people who identify as female or did when the zine was published, or by people of all genders writing about their femme identity.

When possible, we like to get two copies of each zine--one for the archives, and one for the stacks. Please contact us before making your donation. We will be happy to provide a letter acknowledging the donation, but we cannot provide a valuation with it.

Please contact Jenna Freedman if you have questions or want to discuss your collection.
