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.
Although the GRCC Library’s collection is primarily acquired to support the college’s curriculum, our staff realizes the value of providing students options for leisure reading. Breaks from studying and research are necessary and well-deserved, after all! The library offers students fiction and graphic novel reading selections – in print and ebook versions.
Come in today and check out the new graphic novel display that is on our Circulation desk, designed by our Evening Circulation Associate Toni Harrington. To browse more titles, head up to the second floor of the library where the graphic novel section is located at the beginning of the circulating collection.
