The ACC Library has added a selection of graphic novels.

Are you a die-hard comic book fan? New to the world of speech bubbles? A reluctant reader looking to become a bookworm?

No matter. You’re sure to love the recently added Graphic Novel section at ACC’s own Library & Learning Commons.

Graphic novels are fun. They also teach ESL (English as a second language) students, as well as other students who may want to brush up on their language skills by using visual literacy and sequencing.

The graphic novel collection is next to the Library & Learning Commons elevator on the second floor.

“Look for the display that says…wait for it….’Graphic Novels’,” said Casey Lansinger, ACC Librarian.

The newly added section was inspired by a recent grant given to the library.

“We recently beefed up our graphic novel collection with some titles we think you are going to love,” Lansinger said.

Some titles in the graphic novel collection include Ghost World, Tomboy, Embroideries, Blankets, Unterzakhn Berlin, Black Hole, What It Is and The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

Best of all, ACC students can check out up to 8 titles total at a time for 3 weeks. It’s free, as part of your overall ACC costs.
