Graphic novels in libraries have come a long way, moving from dark corners of the collection to becoming anchors of patron activity. Along the way, they've helped to shepherd whole new concepts of library service, ranging from video games to social media to DIY podcasts and video. Toby Greenwalt of Skokie Public Library demonstrates how comics have opened the door for innovation in libraries. Presented at c2e2 on March 18th, 2011.
