Book Club takes comics to a new level

Comic books are not just for kids. And if you haven’t read one since you were a kid, they might be worth checking out again.

In an age of blockbuster action hits at the box office, comic books and graphic novels are a relevant resource for fans of the superhero genre. And the Noble Public Library seeks to find that audience through its newest monthly book discussion group, the Sacred Panels Book Club.

The group is the brain child of librarian David Brown based on his interests and expertise. He has led a presentation on graphic novels and comic books as literature in a Staff Day presentation for colleagues with the Pioneer Library System, and currently teaches a graphic novel class at the University of Oklahoma.

“My vision for the group for the group was to bring in something people are reading, from their collection, something they own, talk about what we’re reading and enjoying it right then,” Brown said.

“The name was originally an idea for a podcast based on Harry Potter themed podcasts. It’s a way to introduce people to literature in another way through reading and getting into comic books.”

Build creativity at the library

We’re building creativity inside the Noble Public Library, where customers of all ages are invited to see all their hometown library has to offer.

You can access more than 700,000 books and materials that are part of the Pioneer Library System’s collection, as well as take part in many creative programs. Among the upcoming activities are:

Adults age 18 and up are using the library's "Studio 204" wing to show off their crafty side at “Tinker Tuesdays” at 5 p.m. on Tuesdays, and also getting both their mind and body in shape through Tai Chi classes offered weekly through the end of November and Gentle Yoga classes weekly into December.

Make your own DIY Bath Bombs in another creative activity for adults at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, in the Ina Byerly Activity Room. Supplies are provided by the library.

For families with young children, Preschool Story Time is a Tuesday morning favorite at 10:30 a.m. most weeks, featuring stories, music, rhymes and STEM-related activities. It takes place each week in the month, on Nov. 5, 12, 19 and 26.

Find out more about everything going on this month in Noble through the online calendar or pick up a copy of our physical calendar inside the library.
