"We are so excited for Free Comic Book Day to make its return to Baker City,"said Library Director Perry Stokes. "With no comic shop nearby, we know it’s an event fans look forward to each spring, and we’re delighted that Meridian Idaho comic retailer "The Collector's Outpost" has agreed to be our partner for the event!"

Free Comic Book Day is a great opportunity for newcomers to dive into the world of comics and for longtime readers to try a new title they may not have picked up otherwise. We encourage comic book fans of all ages to visit the library on Saturday morning, May 7 to celebrate!

Tables will be stocked with free comic books grouped for their age-appropriateness: "All Ages", "Teens+", and "Mature Readers." Comics will be available as supplies last.

A limited supply of FCBD bags and small bonus prizes will also be available while supplies last. Costumed* visitors will get an extra entry ticket for a lottery to win a Kobo eReader grand prize. And they'll get to impress and delight their fellow comic book fans, of course!

If anyone has surplus comics, figurines, or other geeky toys they'd like to gift forward, please bring those donations in to the library any time this week.
