If your kids like graphic novels — or any kind of comics — they’ll probably love the Comikidz Club, which will meet on Friday, July 12 from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Comikidz is for students in Grades 3-5 who like to read and talk about or draw sequential art. Join Sebastien, teen volunteer and resident artist, and learn how to bring your own characters to the page. Each meeting includes free time for the kids to draw. Participants are asked to bring a copy of their current favorite graphic novel to share.

Check the web calendar for a listing of programs the library offers year-round. Information about and registration for all programs can be found at or by calling 617-898-4957 during business hours. You can also like the Children’s Room on Facebook and get updates in your news feed.
