For Access to New Jersey comics, graphic novels, and children’s collection through August 31, 2020 (digital)

The New Jersey State Library announced the availability of more than 4,000 comics, graphic novels, and children’s materials as part of an innovative program to make this content free to all residents of New Jersey throughout the summer. This project is a collaboration with 9 other states and is intended to provide easy access to digital resources while supporting statewide summer reading programs for all ages during the Covid-19 pandemic. More eBooks will be released throughout the summer from additional children’s, comic book, and science fiction publishers.

On July 30, 2020, the New Jersey State Library will also participate in the Virtual Library Comic Convention, featuring interactive sessions with leading talent. We encourage anyone to attend, particularly the youth in our communities, to attend this free event. During the convention, librarians will talk about grassroots graphic novel creation and local zine publishing programs available through public libraries. More details on the online event will be released soon. Stay tuned.
