Oh gosh……. it’s been a while.
You dear reader, should look at this .jpg poster to see if the Lookback Library is coming to your town!
Lookback Library is a San Diego based non-profit organization dedicated to “…preserve printed skateboard materials, promote literacy, & build publicly accessible skateboard magazine libraries.”
Not only do they have a bunch of magazines already, but they are also always looking for donations for more magazines, books, and zines! They are currently traveling with an exhibit of classic issues of Big Brother, Skateboarder, PowerEdge, and Slap, therefore the exhibition was aptly titled: “BrotherBoarderPowerSlap” (though when I went to it, there were also copies of TransWorld, Thrasher, Lowcard, Focus, Skate Jawn and more.)
Want to ask about starting a library at your local shop? Have your zine distributed to a wider audience than your immediate friends, shop family, and Kinko’s employees? Just shoot the breeze with a bunch of skate nerds like yourself?
You can contact the Lookback Library in the following ways:

This is one of the best things to happen to skateboarding in a long while. If this is coming to your area it’s a must see. If it isn’t, get in touch with them and try to make something happen.
