Celebrating National Comic Book Day
Over the last 3-4 years we have emphasized building our library’s collection of graphic novels and Manga to correspond with the growing popularity of the genre. This collection is currently housed with non-fiction, sandwiched between illustration and hand lettering. Since the collection has expanded to almost a thousand volumes, we thought it would be a good time to pull these titles out and give them their own section. This will allow it to grow and make it more accessible to readers. Since September 25th is National Comic Book Day, we wanted to celebrate by encouraging everyone to check out a graphic novel. Come check out a graphic novel or Manga and get a comic themed prize as well as some stickers and bookmarks.

- Help purchase a new book display for the circulation desk
- Replace a wooden book carrier
