you are in the right place!

Hey Hey Hey, Don't worry yer pretty little head, you are in the right place. Hamilton Zine Library has had a location and name change to The Arrow Archive in Guelph. We are under going a few changes so hang tight and we will get our shit back together soon! and we have a new email! woot woot! Who loves the cyber paper trail!

thearrowarchive@gmail.com

and for you who are new: Arrow Archive originally opened in The Steel City (Hamilton, Ontario) as The Hamilton Zine Library. HZL opened in fall 2007 at the Sky Dragon Center based on a small personal collection. The HZL made a reluctant but needed move in fall 2010. The Arrow Archive now lives and thrives in Guelph, Ontario. The Arrow has now grown to over 900 titles and is still growing.

London Circle A Bookfair



A visit to the first annual London bookfair brought home a few new titles and the need to create a new category: Race. Picked up so real good stuff, Please pass the privilege and Kill Me if You Can, Fool are just a few new titles to grace this new category. the zine library still isn't on the shelves at GERCED but I have her here next to me every night. Late November maybe the grand opening.... I wish it could be sooner believe me it is quite cumbersome to live with over 900 zines in yer bedroom.,and that's not including my personal collection.

We've Moved

Good and Bad news:
The library has a new home in Guelph Resource Center for Gender Empowerment and Diversity. oh it's a nice little space with a bigger library with a woman's studies focus. The zine library which is going though a few changes at the moment will keep its independence and be open during GRCGED hours.
What do you do with donations or item returns....???? Soon there with a basket in the basement of the sky drgaon for that purpose.
Also we will be working on a name change.....working on a few ideas... if you got any comment here!
Also would like to take this chance to thanks the Hamilton Community for giving HZL a place in yer hearts. What ever form that this zine library takes it's home town will always be Hamilton The Steel City. Keep reading, Keep creating. Zinesters foreva.

Ps. fag punk is almost in its tenth issue.... contact to get a copy in the mail!!!

Missing Zines

so a list has been made, if you know where i can find copies of these zines let me know, if you have the library's copies laying around at yer house let me know.....
i have many thoughts on why these are the titles missing, some one found it offensive, super cool, or just forgot to return, all of which are not reasons to keep other library patrons form accessing material....any way here goes:

The Hamilton Zine Library has finally finished the auditing process and is back on its shelves (gosh! surry it took soooooo long) and ready to be read, there is a list of a few missing zines that I am going to post here soon and will be searching them out....Out of over 750 titles maybe only 50 titles have gone missing and then maybe only 30 of them are irreplaceable .......So hint hint if you have any signed out or not signed out materials.
