As you may already know, Papercut has moved its hefty collection out of its spot at Lorem Ipsum, where it had resided since late 2011. Tonight, your favorite zine librarians invite YOU (friends, patrons, movers and shakers) to talk about what will come next for the zine library. Come by Lorem Ipsum tonight at 7 to share ideas, stay updated, and munch on snacks. We’re excited for our future and hope you are too!

"The library at Pacific Northwest College of Art ( (PNCA) serves a community of approximately 500 BFA, MFA, and MA students, 200 staff and faculty, continuing education students, and innumerable alumni…
Patrons use the library’s nearly 900-issue circulating zine collection for entertainment, education, and inspiration. Students create zines in PNCA courses, write and publish zines for their theses, and are active in independent publishing. Most of our zines are acquired through donations from their creators or zine collectors. Common themes in our zine collection are comics, art, design, Portland and the Pacific Northwest, feminism, radicalism, GLBTQ topics, pop culture, music, and political activism.”

As far as this librarian can tell, all 15,000+ of our dear zines have made it over the river to Allston and are in-tact and even in some semblance of order!

Although we are mostly out of Lorem Ipsum, you can STILL return zines there (@1299 Cambridge St. Cambridge) until August 1st (please do that!). After that, ideally you will see us at an event, come over to the new (temporary) space during our sporadic open hours, ask us to open by appointment, or even mail those babies to us direct.

There is now a spot on our homepage with a list of our summer events. Come see us at the New England Zine Fest in August, and don’t forget about the big community meeting on July 23rd. We wanna know what you wanna see in Papercut’s next space. We wanna feed you snacks and talk about our other locations.

OK! As always, email us or text us with any questions. Over and out.
