Graphic Novels

Located in the front of the library, you can't miss this section bursting with action and color with dynamic stories for all ages, from comics to sophisticated and complex novels, and an assortment of manga series.

Graphic Novels are not a genre; they are a format, and that format has a little bit of something for everyone. Are there classics that you’ve thought about tackling only to be daunted by prose from another era? Add pictures to stories like the Odyssey or Beowulf and these tales practically read themselves.
