February 5th was National Save our Libraries Day in the UK and Alan Moore, creator of incredibly popular and critically acclaimed series like Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, credits libraries with making him the writer he is today. Pretty heady stuff.
Adults read graphic novels too. So, if that’s your thing you’ll be happy to know that the library has quite a few graphic novels for you on its shelf. JMRL’s wiki, JMRL Reads, is a great place to visit if you’re looking for something to read. There’s even a page devoted to ‘great graphic novels for reading adults’ put together by our Gordon Avenue Branch Manager, Meredith Dickens. Click here to see if any of these titles interest you.
