Free Comic Book Day - May 3rd
Are you ready for Free Comic Book Day? As the name implies, this is a day when comic book stores and libraries around the world give away comics to people of all ages. At the Puyallup Public Library, we’ll be giving out comics at the front of the library, from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm. Treat your inner comic book guy toseries like DC’s The New 52, Adventure Time, Hellboy, Avatar: The Last Airbender or Hello Kitty, just to name a few of the titles we’ll have available. Supplies are limited, so visit us early for the best selection.
This year, we’re celebrating the art of cosplay. Cosplay, short for costume play, is the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or video game. If you’ve ever been to a convention like Emerald City Comic Con, SakuraCon, or PAX, then you’ve probably seen cosplayers! Throughout Free Comic Book Day, we will hold several programs talking about and celebrating cosplay, including showing cosplay documentary, holding an information panel, and hosting a cosplay dance in the evening.
PPL Teen Group
Does the Library do stuff for teens? What? Of course we do stuff for teens! Most Wednesdays, from 3:00 - 5:00, we have programs to delight the curious, tempt the shy, and intrigue the unusual. Watch anime, share a great book, enjoy a movie, write something hilarious, or create a craft!
Teen Group is free and doesn't require registration (most of the time!), and any teens ages 13 - 19 are welcome to stop by and see what's going on! Check our our PPL Teen Group page to see what's happening this month!
Young Adult Librarian Bonnie S will be happy to answer any questions you have about PPL Teen Group and other teen-related activities! Just send her an e-mail

Pathetic human race. Arranging their knowledge by category just made it easier to absorb. Dewey, you fool! Your decimal system has played right into my hands!
