GRCC’s Library has graphic novels! Who knew? Graphic novels are “books made up of comics content. Although the word “novel” normally refers to long fictional works, the term “graphic novel” is applied broadly and includes fiction, non-fiction, and anthologized work.” – Wikipedia.
This collection is used by graphic arts students, English as a Second Language learners, and those seeking a alternative to “too-much text”. If you don’t see what you want, try our free MeLCat Interlibrary Loan Service where we borrow titles from other Michigan libraries (with larger graphic novel collections) we don’t own and alert you when they’re here.
Summer is when you can pick up that book you’ve wanted to read and just didn’t have time. If your reading list isn’t full, you should stop in at the Library and check out (literally) books from our New Books Display.
Titles purchased during the previous 6 months are displayed on shelves near the front door. You can also see lists of new print and eBook titles with our Featured Lists. We hope you will visit in person or virtually!

Check out Archivist/Librarian Mike Klawitter’s Display display – Display Magazine, that is! Published by GRCC since 1964, Display Magazine, a magazine of the arts, features contributions by GRCC students in literature and the visual arts. Display is available in GRCC’s Digital Archive, which Mike curates; you’ll want to take a look online!
Another of our new databases from MeL Michigan eLibrary is Business Book Summaries (BBS). Concise summaries of the best business books will help busy business faculty and students keep up with the latest information in the business world.
Here’s an example of a summary for the book The Culture Builders: Leadership Strategies for Employee Performance, by Jane Sparrow. (Login with your last name and 7-digit Raider number and select the PDF.)
