MPL Comics Club is learning from the pros this Tuesday

Silvanna and Abby draw their own comics during out Comics Club meeting at Mentor Public Library.
The young artists and writers of our Comics Club will be learning from the professionals during their get-together this Tuesday.

Instead of our Main Branch, our Comics Club is meeting at 5 p.m. on Dec. 1 at the Comics & Friends shop in Great Lakes Mall. They, they'll meet local artists and create their own comics.

Our Comics Club is for any 8- through 12-year-old who likes to read, talk about or draw sequential art. Not just superheroes either—we love everything from Amelia Rules to Batman to Bone.

At a typical meeting, the kids talk about a special theme. Then we introduce the kids to graphic novels and comics that can be found in the library’s collection.

We close out each meeting with free time for the kids to draw or read.

Once again, the next Comics Club meeting will be at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1, at Comics & Friends. The club is free to join. However, we do ask that parents or guardians register their children beforehand.

To register a child for the Comics Club, call the library at (440) 255-8811 ext. 221.

If your kid loves comics, they'll probably also like the comics collection they can download for free on Hoopla.
