The OCAD Zine Library Gets French!

Did you know that the OCAD Zine Library has French and bilingual zines? Mais oui! This is Canada, after all, et le français est l’une de nos langues officielles! (That’s “and French is one of our official languages,” for the Anglophones out there.)

On display right now in the Learning Zone is a selection of French and bilingual zines (pictured below). This is a great opportunity to widen your understanding of the Canadian experience! Even if you can’t read French, comics are a fun way to learn a new language — or even just to ingest some of the culture — because of how much they use images and other non-textual methods of communication.

If you can’t make it down in time for the display, ne vous inquiétez pas! Here’s a list of French and bilingual zines in our collection. As always, if you can’t find what you’re looking for in the Learning Zone, ask for help! That’s what we’re here for, after all.
