American Library AssociationThis September, crimefighting DC Super Heroes, the Teen Titans, will team up with the American Library Association (ALA) to promote the value of a library card. As honorary chairs, DC’s Teen Titans will remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.

The Teen Titans are a young group of crimefighters who keep the world safe from the clutches of evil. From Starfire’s green energy beams and power of flight to Raven’s telekinetic and psychokinetic abilities, the Teen Titans have the power, courage and teamwork to rise to any challenges thrown their way.

Posters and bookmarks featuring other DC Super Heroes, including Supergirl, Batman, Super Sons, the Justice League, and Wonder Woman are available in the ALA Graphics summer catalog.
