Comics are for everyone, yet far too often adult graphic novels are relegated to teen sections, resigned to standing order plans, and unconsidered when planning programming. Panelist will provide practical approaches to building high-quality graphic novel collection for adults and targeting and increasing advocacy about why adult graphic novels are needed in every library. Topics will include suggestions for overcoming the unique challenges of creating and maintaining adult graphic novel collections, how to "sell" this collection to stakeholders, suggested titles to purchase to start and grow your collection, and resources for readers advisory and advocacy support. Panelists include Monica Barrette (senior librarian, adult services, Escondido Public Library), Cassidy Charles (digital services librarian, Santa Barbara Public Library), Marcela Peres (library director, Lewiston Public Library), and Amie Wright (library manager, Edmonton Public Library).
