Thanks for your support, Mate!

In pledging any amount to us on Patreon, you're helping us keep what we already offer to the public open and running for even longer.

Our events are always pay-what-you-can on a sliding scale of affordability, and our zine collection will always be open and accessible for the maximum public good. When we are supported by the public via Patreon, we're able to dedicate more time to develop further programmes that provide opportunities to artists, young people, creatives, and members of our community.

(Please note: public thanks is optional; if would prefer not to publicly recognised for your support please let us know!)

About Glasgow Zine Library

Hey pal, thanks for being here! 💙 

Who we are:
Glasgow Zine Library (GZL) is a self-publishing library and community art space based in Govanhill on the south side of Glasgow. We use self-publishing as a jumping off point to explore different subjects through hands-on making and skill-sharing.

As well as housing over 1000 zines in our collection, GZL hosts a year round programme of workshops, reading groups, talks, screenings, social events, and more! We also programme Glasgow Zine Fest, an annual weekend-long festival which hosts over 75 makers at our zine fair, as well as a programme centred around making, sharing, and doing.


Due to Covid-19, we have been forced to shut our doors to the public since March 2020, and have moved all of our programming, including Glasgow Zine Fest, online.

How you can help:
Supporting us through Patreon helps us continue to offer events and programmes which are open to all, donation-based, and accessible, available to the whole community. Public funding is competitive, and programming accessible events often means not turning a profit.

All of our tiers provide the same benefits: early bird ticket access to our events, bonus content, monthly staff picks, and more!


Goals
$127.99 of $160 per month
GOAL 3: TAKING ON THE WORLD
If we reach this amount, we can afford all of the above PLUS the ability to pay for materials needed for our workshops.

We host everything from quilt-making, to 3D sculpting, to comic-book design, to basic zine-making and we need materials for these things!
