The Epicenter/Free Radical/Mission Records Zine Library was originally a project of the Epicenter Zone, a punk rock record store/community space which existed in the Mission District of San Francisco from 1990 to 1999. When the Epicenter Zone closed the Free Radical collective adopted the zine library. Half of the library was put on display at Mission Records, another Mission district punk rock space, while the other half of the library was stored in the apartments of various members of the Free Radical collective. The collective's goal was to eventually house the zine library in their own space, but those were hard years for finding space to rent in San Francisco. In 2003 Mission Records closed and the entire zine library is now stored in a single apartment.
The zine library needs you! If you would like to help organize, catalog, or curate the zine library, we could use all the help we can get. We are looking for safe spaces to display selections from the zine library where they will be appreciated and loved. If any of this sounds like your thing, send an email to smurph @ smurph . org.
