Free Comic Book Day May 7

We’ve got two programs going on this Saturday, May 7, for Free Comic Book Day!

We’ll be giving away comics from 12-4 p.m. in the Storytime Room. We have a great bunch of titles. The number of free comics available per person varies but every teen gets at least one comic (while supplies last). For ages 12-18. Some of the titles available are shown below.

Then, from 1-3 p.m., we’ll be showing one of the best comic book movies of all time: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, based on Bryan Lee O’Malley’s epic graphic novel series. Scott Pilgrim must defeat his new girlfriend’s seven evil exes in order to win her heart (PG-13). For ages 12-18.

May Teen Programs

We’ve got two programs for you in May: a manga drawing workshop on May 1, and a Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament on May 13. If you’re interested, read on for the details.

Saturday, May 1, come celebrate Free Comic Book Day at the library. We’ll be giving away at least one free comic to every teen that stops by (while supplies last, of course). We’ll have a bunch of different titles to give away – everything from superheroes to mecha to humor – and some posters as well. We’ll be set up in the Storytime Room from 11-12 and from 3-4 only. Our supplier for all these fabulous free comics is Bartertown Comics.

Also that Saturday, we’re having a manga drawing workshop with David Sullivan. If you’re into reading manga or want to learn how to draw your own, this will be a great program for you. This will run from 1-2:30 and you do have to sign up in advance to attend. Call 303-762-2555 or stop by the reference desk to do so. I only have one spot left as of this post!

Then on Thursday, May 13, we’ll be holding our first Wii contest in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Unlike our normal drop-in gaming events, this one requires sign-up, so that I can be sure to set up a fair contest for everyone (and fit everyone in the room!). Sign-up is limited to 16 people, so if you want to play, call 303-762-2555 or stop by the reference desk to put your name in. The tournament will start at 4 p.m. sharp and run until 5:30/6 p.m., depending on how many people are competing. Rules for the tournament will come soon.
