We've reported on the Denver Zine Library's fundraising campaign and what a little extra cash will mean to the volunteer crew that maintains this Denver treasure, located somewhat obscurely at 27 Social Centre in Jefferson Park. And though the DZL is already more than halfway to its goal of raising $2,500 (the monthlong campaign ends March 1), it keeps laying video bait. And excellent bait it is, as evidenced by the video above, in which DZL director Kelly Shortandqueer introduces the library and its goal.

The Denver Zine Library does much more than simply house an arcane stash of DIY publications. Shortandqueer and crew not only keep said stash up-to-date and well-catalogued, but they trust folks enough to let them check out the zines. They also bring in zine-makers from across the country for readings: This Friday, Annah Anti-Palindrome (heard above) will fly in from the Bay Area to share work, along with Seattle's On a Clear Day and Kelly himself.
