September is Library Card Sign-up Month and the Graphic Novels & Comics Round Table is partnering with comic creators to help spread the word about the importance of having a library card.
Throughout the month, GNCRT will be featuring at least one new creator each day posing with their library card. Showcasing comic creators in this #GetLibraryCarded campaign spotlights the mutually beneficial relationship between creators and libraries in support of literacy, intellectual freedom, and creative expression - we are stronger together.
Follow @libcomix and @ALALibrary on Twitter to see your favorite comics creators #GetLibraryCarded! This year’s participating creators include A.C. Esguerra (Eighty Days), George O'Connor (Olympians), Jennifer L. Holm (Turtle in Paradise), BonHyung Jeong (Kyle’s Little Sister), Robin Ha (Almost American Girl), David A. Robertson (Breakdown: The Reckoner Rises), MK Czerwiec (Taking Turns: Stories from HIV/AIDS Care Unit 371), Varian Johnson (Twins), and many more.
Want to participate? We encourage all libraries and library lovers to join in! Pose with your library card or favorite comics or graphic novels - maybe at your local library - and tag your favorite creator! Check the Library Card Sign-up Month web page for more ways to celebrate.
