COMICS DRIVE 2018
Following the success of last year’s Comics Drive, CALA is proud to partner with the Arts For Incarcerated Youth Network (AIYNetwork) this year to donate comics and graphic novels to several incarcerated youth facilities in Southern California. We are also working with youth services librarians throughout the LAPL to collect books for needed branches. If you have old comics in good condition you would like to donate, please bring them to the following drop off locations or to Comic Arts LA before December 9th. Comics are a great source of entertainment, education, and empowerment in young readers and we hope even readers with the most limited access can get a chance to enjoy their value.
