Join Greenfield Public Library for Zinetober, a daily zinemaking challenge where creators use a list of prompts to create a new zine for every day of the month. Zinetober is a great way to practice making zines, try out new ideas, and get your creativity flowing. The library will be hosting weekly zine-themed events throughout October to support our patrons with the challenge. Stop by to connect with other creators!

DROP-IN ZINEMAKING - Wednesdays 2-7:30 PM, Makerspace
