The Green Free Library is participating in Free Comic Book Day 2018! The event is celebrated by comic book shops around the world on the first Saturday in May (the 5th this year).

Through a partnership with Heroes Your Mom Threw Out Comic Shop in Elmira Heights, NY, we will again be offering a selection of free comics (all titles we have selected have been rated either “All Ages” or “Teen” by the publishers)!

Stop by the library between 1-4pm on Saturday, May 5th to select a few free comics to keep—and browse the library’s circulating collection of graphic novels for kids through adults. Snacks and other activities will be available!

DC Comics or Marvel Comics? (Or film/television universes, if you prefer!) We are having a week-long Penny War (April 28th-May 5th)! Choose your favourite comic publishing company and put pennies in your team's container to gain points—and put nickels, dimes, and quarters (or paper bills) in the other team's container to take away points! All money donated through the Penny War will go to teen programming at The Green Free Library!

Each quarter you put in the DC vs Marvel Penny War containers will give you one entry for our prize giveaway—place the entry ticket in the bag of your choice. Everyone who attends Free Comic Book Day will get one complimentary ticket! (Prizes will be announced soon!)

Coins will be collected for our Penny War until 3:30pm on May 5th, when we will draw the winning tickets and announce whether DC Comics or Marvel has the most support! (You need not be present to win.)

We won’t be having a cosplay contest, but feel free to attend in costume (do take into consideration that this is a family event and the library is open for regular services)!
