Free Comic Book Day!

Saturday, May 2--All day in the Young Adult Room for teens in grades 6 and up.
Celebrate the incredible world of sequential art with free comics. Libraries and comic book stores will give away comic books that day to promote this under-appreciated form of literature. Get free comics while supplies last and participate in activities for the comic book enthusiast. You can visit a local comics shop for official Free Comic Book Day selections, but the library has more of the random comics variety.

See It, Don't Say It


Look at this amazing infographic! Look at it! It's like one of those magic eye posters where you stare at it until you see the hidden picture, except with this you stare at it for mere SECONDS and your brain is magically populated with facts about octopuses. (I didn't know "octopi" was incorrect, did you?) That is the power of infographics, and that is why we are teaching a class about creating your own!

Join us on Monday, April 13 from 5-6:30 in the Technology Room on the second floor of the library. We will school you on the world of infographics (here's a link to our Prezi), or just set you free to experiment with them yourself using the tools below:

Easel.ly
Piktochart
Infogr.am

Gordon Parks

Today I learned about African American photographer, Gordon Parks. While working as a railroad porter, he happened upon a magazine photo story about migrant workers. He was so moved and inspired by the images that he bought a used camera at pawn shop. That purchase changed his life forever. Gordon Parks became the first African American photographer for Vogue and Life magazine. In his most famous photo, as seen here, he conveyed the contradiction between segregation and freedom in America in the 1940s.
