The Orange County Zine Library & Reading Room Opens at the OC Great Park!

We’ve been really fortunate to have a hand in this zine library coming together. Good news is, it’s still a work in progress! Bring your (PG-appropriate) zines to the opening and donate them to the zine library.  For more information about your zine’s inclusion in the library, contact Kevin at KStaniec[at]! The library and reading room are located at the Palm Court Arts Complex in the Orange County Great Park in Irvine.

The Orange County Zine Library & Reading Room is an exhibition curated by L.A. Zine Fest in collaboration with popular zine festivals in Brooklyn, Houston, Scranton, and San Francisco.  The library features over 200 zines from across the country as well as the zine documentary $100 & A T-Shirt.

$100 & A T-Shirt is a cultural analysis of the zine community created by Basil Shadid, Rev. Phil Sano, Nickey Robo, and Joe Biel.  The documentary sparks untapped creativity and new interest into zine making and reading.

To celebrate the opening of the Orange County Zine Library & Reading Room, artist Yumi Sakugawa created a free zine for guests entitled ‘How to Make a Zine.’
