If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, come stop by the Create Space on the Concourse level of the library! There are all kinds of materials for your creative and tinkering endeavors, including scissors, rulers, wrenches, beads, old cassette tapes, doorbells, telephones and more!
There are also plenty of tables to work at, and white boards for working things out. Consider having a group or club gathering in the space to work on a creative project!
Here is a sneak peak of one of the typewriters that will be available for checkout in the fall – from the original manual. Many thanks to STL student staff member Miriam Marx for tracking this down, and for all her hard work putting together quick start guides for our fabulous new fleet!
The New Paltz Zine Library has been busy with summer projects and presentations. We’re getting caught up on cataloging new zines for the collection and moving into our lovely new shelving!
We’re also working on getting our zine-making kits and typewriters ready for you to check out in the fall, and planning for a proposed “Create Space” on the Concourse level of STL.
On June 10th we’ll be presenting on zines at the SUNY Library Association Conference in Binghamton. We’ll be talking about the hows and whys of starting a zine library and former Zine Library Intern Kelly Lindberg will be sharing excerpts from her film Aboveground and the Underground Converge: the New Paltz Zine Library.
