Free Comic Book Day — May 7, 2011

Hey Hey, It’s Free Comic Book Day!

Stop by any library branch on May 7th or after and pick up a comic book totally for FREE!  Since 2002, comic shops have been giving out free comics to their customers on the first Saturday in May.   (The branches that are closed on Saturday May 7, 2011 will have them to give out on Monday May 9, 2011). This celebration of comics and comic book stores has grown over the last nine years to include author visits, costume contests and all sorts of other events.  Downtown Comics decided to include the library in all the fun, and they donate comics to all our branches for us to pass along to you!  So visit us, get something for free and check out the library’s collection of graphic novels available to borrow.  We have everything from your favorite superheroes to independent comics and manga.  For more info click Free Comic Book Day  or Downtown Comics.
