Evergreen Infoshoppe Gets A Firm Foothold in 2007

This gang of ass-kicking rebel Evergreeners have been working at this for a few years now and it seems they've gotten it off the ground! Nice work everybody. Let us know how we can better knit The Infoshoppe, Last Word and the 'Zine Library together. I'll pop in and check out your new pad one of these days. - Sky

Earlier this month, a student-run non-profit infoshop celebrated its grand opening at The Evergreen State College (TESC) in Olympia, Washington. Using the guise of a state funded student group, volunteers of The Evergreen Infoshoppe were allotted over $4,000 to purchase radical books, zines, and videos for their lending library and resource center. After only a few weeks of planning, the Infoshoppe now hosts an ever-growing collection in a permanent, centrally located and nearly autonomous location.

Hey, it's awesome to see a blog for the OZL. I started the project in 1997 and, like the best volunteers, ended up in library school partially out of the frustration and fascination with trying to organize those zines. I'm in Philly now, but someday I'd like to work on it again. Thanks for all you're doing
