Annual Conference Session
Librarians! Do you want to meet local comic shop owners who will help you stock your shelves with graphic novels? Do you want to find out how to make connections with your local comic shop? This event will help us make connections between librarians and comic shops through discussion and networking, with the goal being that both librarians and comic shops understand the benefits and process of ordering from a local comic shop. A list of shops who actively work with libraries will be provided.
The Graphic Novels & Comics Round Table is pleased to host this session presented by ComicsPRO and Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, featuring Jennifer Haines, vice-president of ComicsPro and Betsy Gomez, of the CBLDF. Together, these organizations are creating programs to encourage more collaboration between comic book stores and libraries, including a certification workshop on working with libraries for comic stores.
