New Zine Releases
Dream Zine (Vol. 1) by Lily Kosmicki
Dream Zine,a new creation coming to you from local artist and DZL volunteer Lily Kosmicki, is an art/collage zine based on the dreams of friends, strangers, family, and the artist herself. Stop by the DZL to check it out! And  be sure to share your own interesting dreams for possible use in future issues:

Got a new zine/issue ready for release? Please contact us at so we can be sure to add your zine to our "New Releases" display and social media campaign!
Zine Librarian-of-the-Month
To help get you acquainted with the volunteers who keep us running, please enjoy this new feature in which we highlight one of our fabulous zine librarians!

Name: Hana Zittel
Creator of Zines? Nope, but nothing gives me more joy than cataloging and exploring the zines of others!
DZL Connection:  I have been volunteering for about three years and have been working on cataloging the DZL collection
Super power: Librarian-ing! When I'm not helping at the Denver Zine Library I am trying to get folks to pick up a book from the Denver Public Library
Secret weakness: Popcorn, candy, ice cream, wine...this was probably not a food based question, but I made it so!
