I apologize for the lateness of this newsletter. Today is February 16,
this should have been out around the first, and overall we try to keep
true the deadlines we set. We are however, a completely volunteer run
community lending library and well, the volunteer power hasn�t been too
strong of late. We need your help. Please stop by and see how you can get
involved. Use the Library and spread the word. A library meeting this past
week declared an all out action plan to step up the operation of the
library, heads together we�re committed to meeting all of our deadlines.
The Denver Zine Library welcomes Weston to our volunteer crew. Thank you
for your cataloging work, organizing a benefit concert [March 5], and for
scoring a XEROX machine, our first. Not only did Weston win the Xerox
machine, he attempted to resurrect it from it�s basement grave with some
friends � now that�s tough! But power muscle in place, the Xerox machine
is still in some woman�s basement not being used.
If anyone has free access to a moving company or any of the ramps used to
move large machines, please contact the library, because we could use some
help resolving this issue.
Weston, you�re the volunteer of the month, congratulations. Also, thank
you Jamez for all of your hard work at the library these past couple of
weeks and for committing to finish our 501C3 application [with the hope
that we may one day canvass for the library together].
At the action meeting we decided we�re going to start a Denver Zine
Library Membership sustainer. With membership you will get a monthly
newsletter, a specified number of free copies a month, a t-shirt, and a
library card. You do not need a membership to check out zines! We�re also
starting a zine of the month distribution to thin out our doubles. DZL
Membership and the Zine of the Month Club will each have a timeline of six
months. More information to come �
Upcoming EVENTS: Events are free, with a suggested donation to the
library, and are held at the library.
