Graphic novels in zee libraries
Currently I am attempting to introduce NYPL to the wide wonderful world of graphic novels for children. NYPL is notorious for avoiding anything that isn't "quality" literature. Fortunately there are young beautiful things like me to keep 'em up-to-date. That said, I don't want to add just any old thing. Until now, I've also been bogged down in some ways by my own limited knowledge. Thank God for School Library Journal. In their most recent issue (which I haven't seen yet because SOMEBODY in my office has been hogging it... hint... hint...) there's a wonderful cover story on adding and defending great graphic novels in your children's collection. Not only that but the author includes a list of possible additions. I would definitely do away with things like Jimmy Neutron (I do have some standards), but by and large this article may well save my hide.
