Under new management!


I am very excited to be able to announce that myself (Steve Carlton) and Elizabeth Murray Jones are going to be taking over the running of Salford Zine Library. I am an actual qualified librarian and we both make zines under the name 'Young Explorer', so we reckon that we're well placed to continue Craig's excellent work and make the library an inspiring place to visit for as many people as possible.

We have loads of things we want to do but we're also keen to get the whole community involved. If you have any ideas or suggestions for improving the library, please get in touch. We're currently drawing up plans for exciting new stuff, so watch this space! In the mean time, if you have any zines that you would like to submit to the library, please note the change of address. There's no selection criteria - we accept anything as long as it is self published.

Many thanks,

Steve and Liz
