Central Library's Youth Department will distribute free children's comic books on Saturday, May 3, 1:00-5:00 p.m., as part of Free Comic Book Day. The American Library Association is providing the comic books, courtesy of Diamond Comic Distributors. One comic book per child. Supplies available while they last. For more information call 226-3655.
"This event is another way to make reading fun, especially for children having trouble with words. Through comic books, children can get information from the pictures. The pictures can help them understand the words. This is just one more way we can encourage reading," says Barbara Hutto, a librarian in the Youth Department.
