About Graphic Novels

"...Graphic novels are books written and illustrated in the style of a comic book. The term graphic novel was first popularized by Will Eisner to distinguish his book A Contract with God (1978) from collections of newspaper comic strips. He described graphic novels as consisting of “sequential art”  —  a series of illustrations which, when viewed in order, tell a story."  (From "Using Graphic Novels with Children and Teens", Scholastic).

The Libraries offers a great selection of graphic novels for all reading levels.  To locate a graphic novel in the library, you can search using the title or author of the graphic novel. For a listing of all graphic novels available, enter "graphic novels" as a subject heading search.
