It’s Build-a-Zine Week at the Fond du Lac Public Library’s Idea Studio December 12-16. Zines are usually small, handmade magazines that focus on a certain topic.

Stop in any time to create a page: tell a story, write a poem, illustrate an idea – anything goes, as long as it fits in the margins of the preprinted outlines.
