Parklands-Turner Junior Comic Book Club

The Parklands-Turner Neighborhood Library has a terrific collection of comic books and graphic novels.  Each month, library staff will select a popular title for you to enjoy. Children are encouraged to visit and read in the library, or check out the selected comics on display.  Better still, kids can select any comic titles from any library across the city and have them delivered to Parklands-Turner, especially for you!

Happy National Comic Book Day!

Creating Comic Strips with Fankids from Around the Globe

Petworth fankids had a great time discussing  comic books, comic strips, and graphic novels on National Comic Book Day (celebrated September 25th annually)! A custom-designed template guided the children in the creation of their own colorful, four-panel superhero comic strips. Afterwards, these anxious authors were excited to receive free comic books courtesy of "nice guy" Nick at Big Planet Comics, along with Chipotle meal coupons, DCPL tattoos, and congratulatory stickers.

Powerful Reading

Free Comic Book Day

Readers of all ages enjoy comics, but on May 2, children and teens across the city were able to browse and select a free comic at their closest public library. Thanks to Big Planet Comics, all District of Columbia Public Library locations received multiple copies of popular stories from Manga, Marvel, IDW and more. Two young readers, Ezra Marshall and Stacey Young, captured the spirit of the day at the William O. Lockridge/Bellevue Library by posing for photos and encouraging others to read more comics.
