What’s New · Reading is a Super Power

From page to screen, superheroes are taking over summer. The Library has a “powerhouse” collection of comic books and graphic novels, popular superhero flicks, and movie soundtracks. To compliment this year’s Summer Reading theme, Power Up…READ!, staff from the Popular Library and TeenSpot pulled together some of their top picks for teens and adults.
