Free Comic Book Day

Saturday, May 6th the Swansea Public Library will be participating in Free Comic Book Day. The library will have comic books donated by Game King in Fall River, as well as back issues donated by The Time Capsule in Seekonk. Supplies are limited, so the library encourages people to come in early. If people come in costume, they will be allowed to take extra comic books, so costumes are strongly encouraged.

In celebration of the release of the film Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, the Swansea Public library is also having a few comic book related events and contests.

At 1pm there will be a trivia contest, followed by the coloring and craft, and making your own edible baby Groot in dirt. Visit the library in your favorite superhero costume and get a special treat. Free Comic Book Day is an annual international comic book giveaway that encourages interest in comic books.
