This past weekend at New York Comic Con, Kids Read Comics and Reading With Pictures announced the start of our new joint venture — a free guide for public libraries that want to put on a comic-con-style event. The guide will include tips on programming, staffing, budgeting, finding guests, running an artist alley, and more…and our goal is to make it scalable to suit the needs of a wide range of libraries and the diverse communities they serve.
Check out a PDF of our handout from NYCC in the link below. If you’re a librarian, we’d love to get your feedback at this early stage so we can make sure the final kit reflects your needs and answers your questions (contact info is in the PDF). And if you’re a library patron who thinks the folks at your local public library would be interested, please call their attention to it.
We’re eager to hear your thoughts!
