This Saturday, October 14th 2017, Central Library hosts the 4th annual St. Louis Small Press Expo (SPEx). The event will feature over 80 vendors, you can find the complete list of vendors here. One of the tables will feature Central's own zine collection where you can drop off zine donations, or pick up some to check out.
