Who's Afraid of Comic Books? Building and Maintaining Graphic Novel Collections @ Your Library
Graphic novel enthusiasts and longtime collection developers, Jack Baur (Berkeley Public Library) and Amanda Jacobs Foust (Marin County Free Library), brought their popular workshop from the Bay Area to southern California on May 17, 2012, in a program presented by CLA's Youth Services Interest Group. The workshop began with tips on purchasing, organizing, and maintaining graphic novels in the library, and provided attendees with information on the future of digital comics. A high-profile panel of comic book professionals, Ed Brubaker, Hope Larson, Stan Sakai, and Steven Seagle, then discussed the importance and educational value of graphic novels.
Attendees also had the opportunity to take part in a “Comic Book Petting Zoo,” featuring both traditional print formats as well as digital comics for iPads.
