Do you like comics? Do you ever make your own comics?
Putney Library would love to help you make your own comics AND swap copies of your comics with other kids!
Step 1: Make some comics! Check out the resources below to help you get started.
Step 2: Drop your comic off at the Putney Library in the library drop box. Make sure your name is on your comic and that there’s a separate piece of paper inside the envelope with your address on it.
Sept 3: Librarians Emily and Julia will make copies of all the comics that kids submit and then mail each kid a package with (1) their original comic, (2) a few additional copies of their comics to give out, (3) a copy of everyone else’s comic AND (4) stickers with your drawing of your characters!
Please get comics to the library by October 23rd—Comics packages will be sent out in early November.
