#hyperlib Virtual Symposium: Libraries to the rescue!

My husband is a comics artist, so I thought I would make a comic for my virtual symposium post!

Also, I’ve been hearing a lot lately about how graphic novels and comics can draw the youths into the library and make them love reading, so it seemed appropriate for that reason, also.

Finally, I really like the idea of the librarian as a superhero.  Maybe Marilyn Johnson was right all along.

This comic is available as a pdf: hyperlib symposium

  1. I love this! Including yourself in the graphics really made the experience “human” and I felt connected to the story. Yes, teens love comics and graphic novels! I am going to share Comic Life 3 with my teachers as another great resource for students to create engaging research projects that are vibrant, hip and fun. Nicely done! Thank you.

  2. Monica, you comic is fantastic!!! I love it so much! I think you capture the essence of the class in a fun and creative way. I also love the idea of the librarian as a superhero, so this was especially fun. I love how you highlighted the importance of helping people make connections. That is one of my biggest takeaways from this class as well, and it’s important to remember!! Thank you for sharing your insights in such a wonderful way 🙂
