Multnomah County Library’s zine collection can be found in five locations: Albina, Belmont, Central, Hollywood, and North Portland. The focus of the collection is to provide a showcase for local authors that produce zines on popular topics of interest to our community.

The library’s zines can be searched in the catalog and can be placed on hold, checked out, and renewed like other library material.  If you’d like to suggest a zine that you think the library should have in our collection, please submit a suggestion for purchase, or get in touch with us!

Zine Exchange boxes at some library locations allow zinesters to freely share their works and view the works of others. Zines may be dropped off, taken home and brought back again when read.  These zines are not part of the library collection.
