Hundreds of Librarians Can't Be Wrong! 


Scheduled Chats

Something New is in the Air!

WELCOME to the GNLIB-On-The-Web Communications Area!  Thank you for taking time to join us to chat about graphic novel collections in public and school libraries.  Your input is important to us and we welcome your participation in a member chat.  Take a look at the ideas below and offer your input!

Scheduled GNLIB Chats.  We are currently planning scheduled chats on a weekly basis.  Appearing on alternating Wednesdays and Fridays at 2:00 p.m. EST, we can meet to discuss a variety of topics relating to graphic novels.  These discussions will be an online version of a round-table, or interest group meeting.  Members are asked to volunteer to help moderate the discussion.  A sample schedule is below.
