A very cool event is happening at Green Brain Comics on Wednesday, March 13th from 5-7. The author of the New series of Ms. Marvel comic series will be signing books at Green Brain. Saladin Ahmed is a Dearborn native, who has authored numerous comics as well as the Hugo Award nominated novel, Throne of the Crescent Moon. This is an amazing series of books, and I am glad they will be continuing. Come to the library and check them out!
Thanks to a grant from the Dearborn Education Foundation, we were able to purchase some awesome new seating for the media center. Two of the chairs have laptop tables with outlets behind them, which make them a great spot to work. The other chairs have springy backs and are a great spot to get comfortable with a book. Come down to the media center and try them out!
