It's our favorite time of year at the library! Our Summer Reading Program, Dig Deeper: Read, Investigate, Discover!, is in full swing--readers are reading, points are being earned, and prizes are being given away. If you've participated in Summer Reading before then you know it's all about the library bringing fun programs and free books to everyone, and that's why LBPL is excited to announce the availability of more than 4,000 comics, graphic novels, and children’s materials as part of the Virtual Library Comic Convention.

The best part? This content is completely free to all California residents until August 31st, and all of the eBooks are available in an unlimited, simultaneous use model which means no holds or waiting for materials. If you have a voracious reader in your household this is a perfect resource to keep them entertained.

On July 30, 2020, LBPL will also participate in the Virtual Library Comic Convention, featuring interactive sessions with leading talent. This free event will be open to everyone. During the convention, librarians will talk about grassroots graphic novel creation and local zine publishing programs available through public libraries. Check out more details here!
