Hello and welcome to the Newport Beach Public Library’s Second Annual Summer Zine Exchange!

We are so excited that you have decided to create something to share with others! Not sure what a zine is? We made you a zine for that!

The Zine Exchange process:

  1. Pick up a zine creation packet at your local Newport Beach Public Library location
  2. Use the included paper and marker/brush pen (and your own photos, drawings, magazine clippings, or whatever else you’d like) to create a zine
  3. Return your completed zine and submission form in the supplied baggie to any NBPL locations by July 31st 2022 (no need to staple them, we can do that for you; and the marker/brush pen is yours to keep!)
  4. The library will make (black and white/grayscale) copies of your zine and put them in other people’s bags, and their zines in yours
  5. You can pick up your new zine collection starting August 15th, 2022 (your zine will be sent to the location you checked on your submission form, if none is selected, we will have it at Central)

Additional information:

You retain all rights to your own work. The library will only make and distribute copies of your zine for this event.

To respect your privacy, your name will not be attached to your zine by the library. We are collecting names only to help find your baggie of stuff when you come pick it up… feel free to use a pseudonym, but include your name in your zine if you want!

We will do our best to return your original work to you along with your new zines, but there’s always the chance they could get bent or torn.
