Started in 2022, the Muskegon County Community Zine Collection (a special collection of Hackley Public Library’s Local History Department) aims to be an amplifier of marginalized voices in our communities. This special collection will consist of submissions from adults living in Muskegon County, and be available for patrons to take home and read.
Since zines are inherently flimsy (given they are usually printed on regular printer paper), we will be scanning each accepted submission and storing them digitally in our local history collection. This means that, even when the tangible copy wears out, there will always be a digital copy of your work available!
We hope this collection will be a great way to show our communities that we are willing to listen and promote their stories! This is where you come in . . .
We would love to include your zines in this collection. Your stories, your thoughts, your artwork, your poetry, whatever creativity is bursting to get out, we want to put it in our collection! To submit your zine, simply go to your nearest Muskegon County library and ask for a zine submission form, or download a form at the link below.
Efforts for this Muskegon County Community Zine Collection are made possible in part through:
