The second program is Blam! Let’s Make Comics! It’s on Saturday from 2:30-3:30 for grades 5-8 and is also in the storytime room. Have you ever wanted to make your own comics? Come to this program and get started! Using rulers, paper, and basic drawing materials you’ll be able to learn how to make your own awesome comic book. Click here to register for this program.

Russell Lissau is a comic book writer who has written for The Batman Strikes series and he’ll be hosting both programs! So you’ll get to learn lots from a person who knows his comics.

So if you love comics or if you want to try something new and get creative, come to the Des Plaines Library this Saturday!

Looking for a new vampire book to read??

I just finished reading Frostbite the sequel to Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. It totally rocked. If you like Twilight, you’ll like these books. There’s vampires, danger, action and romance. Can’t wait until November for book #3, Shadow Kiss

If you prefer to find your vampires in graphic novels, try Life Sucks by Jessica Abel. Dave, a vampire in his early 20’s is stuck working a dead end job at the Last Stop mart. His life is filled with vampire poseurs, goth chicks, vamp and human friends and his Last Stop boss who also happens to be his Master. Good, fast read. Check it out.
