Free Comic Book Day

*

Free Comic Book Days are here! Join us as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Free Comic Book Day. Usually held the first Saturday in May, Free Comic Book Day was postponed this year due to COVID-19. The Library has turned this event into a week-long celebration that brings the comic book industry and the Library together to give away free comic books and celebrate all that is comics. While supplies last, visit any library branch between Monday, August 16 and Saturday, August 21 to get your free comics and swag bag. Call your local branch ahead of time to ask if they're still available. (updated 8/19/21)

Some of the amazing virtual events include: graphic novel artist and author Raea Gragg; a Star Wars cosplay panel; demonstrations by artist Sam Filstrup and the Charles M. Schulz Museum; and guest speakers, including voice actor Jesse Burch and writer Dan Slott.
