building a zine collection

hello friends.
i need your help!

i am in the initial stages of developing a zine collection for a public library (system)in central ohio, but i am working with no budget, no possible donor collections to build upon, and a not-very-extensive network of zinesters at my immediate disposal.

how do i start collecting?

my plan is to amass (by soliciting donations and through my own funding) at least 500 zines before applying for grants for further *purchase.* i guess my question is, is this an appropriate strategy? if not, what is?

or, if it is, how do i proceed and make contact with possible donors or zinesters?

imput please!
