Love Your Rebellion’s Zine Library at Neenie’s House in East Fort Myers, will reopen on Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. and will feature a café with free guest WiFi.
LYR originally opened the library in November of2019, featuring over 150 DIY art and writing booklets, and four public art installations.
In early 2020, the library closed due to the pandemic. The time off gave LYR the chance to reorganize and reopen with more to offer the public. Patrons can expect lattes, teas and a few treats like Loveboat Ice Cream and homemade chocolates. The café will also have free WiFi access for visitors.
Angela Page, LYR’s founder, says, “Our hope is to create a community library and café that can offer folks a unique place to work and spend their free time.”
And Neenie’s House will also be adding a new feature of having local artisans sell their creations in the shop. Each artist will have a small space to keep their wares, so anyone can come in and buy them at any time.
The reopening is possible due in part by a fundraiser by the Offbeats Twitch community, and Janeen Vanko, owner of Neenie’s House, who continues to be a generous sponsor.
Join LYR for a soft opening Feb. 24, from 2 to 6 p.m., and receive a free chocolate sample with the purchase of a beverage. The library will then be open every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 2 to 6 p.m. For more info, visit www.loveyourrebellion.org/lyr-zine-library.
