Drawing Readers

Does this sound familiar? “Put down that comic book and read a real book!”

Parents, teachers and, yes, even librarians may have been comic book scolds in the past, but today graphic novels are gaining more and more respect among young and not-so-young readers. We are proud to support this trend.

ComicsPlus

The Library is teaming with ComicsPlus: Library Edition, an online resource that lets you enjoy thousands of graphic novels and hundreds of series.  Through the Library’s website, you can get access to such comics series as “Adventure Time,” “Naruto,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Star Trek,” “Back to the Future,” “Bone,” “Dungeons & Dragons,” Ghostbusters,” “Jurassic Park,” “Transformers,” “Skylanders” and even the classic, “Peanuts.”
