Somerville gets zine library

Wicked Local – “After more than four years in Harvard Square, the Papercut Zine Library has found a new home in Somerville. When the library reopens next week, patrons will once again be able to borrow a variety of independently produced media, dealing with everything from politics to the author’s private thoughts. “We have a pretty broad definition of ’zines,’” said Clara Hendricks, a member of the collective that runs Papercut. “They’re independent or underground, sometimes handmade, publications. We do have some glossy printed magazines, but they are all independent. The vast majority of our collection is photocopied, handmade. We archive some of that stuff that you wouldn’t find at the public library.”
