ABC No Rio Zine Library braucht Geld

"The ABC No Rio Zine Library is one of the best keep secrets around. Located in ABC No Rio, New York City's Lower East Side radical community center, the library houses over 12,000 items. While the focus of the collection is fanzines, it also contains thousands of publications from anarchist, left anti-authoritarian and grassroots community groups. It is one of the very few places in the US (alongside KSL and the Labadie collection) where anarchist print publications from 1970 to the present are actively collected and made accessible to the public. All of the librarians are volunteers, and everything in the library has been donated - the library has no budget. But it desperately needs to purchase preservation materials to help protect the collection; specifically acid-free boxes and plastic sleeves for the periodicals. So we're holding a party to help raise money".
