Although the first day of spring began March 20, it only now feels like spring. With the warmer temperatures and the sun shining, gardening is now on the mind of many. Visit the OCAD Seed Library in partnership with the Toronto Seed Library and check out a few seeds, sprout a plant, harvest some seeds and return new seeds to the seed library.
The OCAD Zine Library presents New Student Zines. At the OCAD Zine Library there is something for everybody and also an awesome space to read zines and take a restorative break from studying.
Zine titles on display starting with bottom shelf: Magical Girls, Shit my co-worker says!, the Roomba Suicide Diaries, BAD Bipolar: Bipolar Affectiv Disorder Vol. 1, That story about the one time I dyed my hair and got so high on myself I made a whole stupid zine about it, Marie and WorryWart, Study Buddy, I love Kanye, Take Heart: Self Care for Artists & Designers, Wet N Wild.
