eSpotlight - Graphic Novels in Libraries Month

We love graphic novels at the San José Public Library!

July is Booklist's Graphic Novels in Libraries month, and San José Public Library has large eComic collections available for you to enjoy!

We love graphic novels at the library. They meld two great storytelling techniques, the written word and art, to complement each other and share creative stories, imaginative ideas, and memorable characters.

After immersing yourself in our online graphic novels and comics, why not check out the Graphic Novel Making Contest? There is still time left to enter, and our previous eSpotlight can be used for inspiration!
