The Hanoi Zine Library

Written by


The Hanoi Zine Library is a free arts library project that was created to give people in Vietnam access to the types of cool international arts-and-culture materials that are often only locally available on the internet. These small, creator-made books about niche interests have been donated overseas and carried over in people’s spare luggage allowance. This is the only dedicated space for the medium in Vietnam.


Part of the @youthculturelibrary network, which also has library spaces in Saigon, the Hanoi incarnation has 300+ zines to sort through and get inspiration from. The space is open most Sundays, and has a maker’s corner — where you can make your own zines — free water and tea, and occasional low-cost workshops.


Go to to check for future Open Sundays. Address and contact details of the library are posted with events
