A new library has opened up right in Harvard Square. But they don't have any books. Instead, they have 'zines.

'Zines are self-published magazines that address universes of different topics. There are 'zines about being a substitute teacher, how to compost, growing up as an immigrant, animal rights and high school crushes. They're becoming increasingly popular as everyone starts to make their own 'zine.

Now there are 'zine libraries all around the country. This radio piece documents the opening of Boston's new 'zine library.
