I love my local library. Always have. When we lived on Merriman I considered the Main Library “our” branch, and I would take the kiddo to the library at least once a week to hang out and explore. Now that we're in the suburbs, I have fallen for our local branch, and the kiddo still loves going to pick out a chapter book or computer game or graphic novel regularly. We have always taken advantage of the great programs the library has to offer -- Thursday Movies @ Main and Main Event Talks, the Summer Reading Program, and on and on.
That's what makes it even more cool to know that if you live in Northeast Ohio, our awesome Akron-Summit County Public Library has purchased fifteen copies of Deus ex Comica: The Rebirth of a Comic Book Fan and made them available for borrowing, including two at the Main Library (one in Pop Culture and one in Special Collections) and two at my local Fairlawn-Bath Branch!
Cathy Morgan, the Adult Services Librarian at my local branch, feels strongly about supporting local authors and has been behind my book from the moment she found out about it. I stopped in to see her earlier this week, and she couldn't wait to take me out onto the floor of the branch to show me where my book is displayed! And she and I are both eager to have me do an author's visit at her branch this fall, so stay tuned for more info over the next few months as we finalize the details of the event. In the meantime, check out a copy of Deus ex Comica to support our local library, and if you like it, please consider buying a copy to support a local author.
