Think the National Library is just a boring, dusty place filled with old books that nobody cares about? Not so! Welcome to the new NLA blog where we’ll talk about some of the less well known parts of our amazing collection. Well, actually YOUR collection because it belongs to all of us! Find out about our zines, comics, ephemera, the quirky and the fun – in fact all things a little “fringy”. We’ll let you know about what we collect, why we do it, how we manage it, also our favourites, new stuff and much, much more. This is a place for us to share our passion with you and also to seek your comments, ideas and help. We hope we can surprise and entice you! Julie
