We are thrilled to announce the library was just awarded a grant from the Katharine L.W. and Winthrop Murray Crane 3d Charitable Foundation!
We’ve received $2,000 to put towards the creation of a Young Adult Graphic Novel collection. Various types of works fall under the blanket term of graphic novel. These include traditional serial comics, Japanese manga, and stand alone works of fiction and non-fiction.
While we do have some graphic novels in our collection, this grant will allow us to put together an impressive core collection–something we wouldn’t be able to do within the confines of our annual budget. Once created, we’ll be able to maintain and grow the collection using our annual materials budget.
Look for the collection to start appearing in the new year!
