Attention fans of comics & graphic novels!
This blog is about new paperless reading materials like downloadable audio books, ebooks, and online magazines, made available to you through the Appleton Public Library. I plan to provide helpful tips on using these new products, along with reviews of audio books, music on cd, and movies on DVD and Blu-ray. There may even be an occasional post on genealogy. The library is changing as rapidly as your access to media and the Internet. We want to keep on top of the trends and bring you information and entertainment in a way that fits your life today. -Diana
Saturday, May 4, is Free Comic Book Day! Every year on the first Saturday of May participating comic book shops give away comic books free to people who visit their stores. Learn more at http://www.freecomicbookday.com .
This year, the Appleton Public Library will be partnering with Chimera Hobby to be a give-away site.*
Appleton Public Library lends graphic novels—stories told in words and pictures, like a traditional comic book—for children, teens and adults. A display of teen and adult graphic novels from our collection will be available for check out, along with a guide to some interesting and important adult graphic novels. The library also has a large collection of manga.
We will also be promoting a program this summer for teens (grades 7-12) called Secret Identity Workshop. Teens will create their own superhero identity cards!
