Dark Horse Comics Fill Texas Library Shelves

This is an awesome story that should be shared! Imagine your own local library being given a $20,000 prize, which includes over 700 hand picked graphic novels and fixtures and furniture for placement in that library. Well, Dark Horse Comics was the company that just provided this giveaway to a lucky individual, Eduardo Zepeda from the Weslaco Public Library in Texas. I know this is not your average comic information that goes out because it is not sharing a new book coming out, but I think most libraries can use this kind of giveaway. I think this was an awesome thing that Dark Horse Comics just did! Hopefully, we may be lucky to see this giveaway happen in our area or maybe even your own library.

“This is tremendous, as the books will be a great addition to our graphic novel collection. We look forward to sharing this prize with our patrons and seeing readers sitting on the couch reading and enjoying the books.” Martin Mata, also from the Weslaco Public Library, shared, “The couch will be placed in the new learning commons, where we have a plasma TV and no seating area for people to be able to enjoy it.”

The “Great Graphic Novel Library Giveaway” was open to Texas public and school librarians.
