Three public libraries on the Big Island will participate in Free Comic Book Day on May 2.

Hilo Public Library, Kailua-Kona Public Library, and Thelma Parker Memorial Public & School Library will join 20 additional Hawai’i State Public Library System libraries in the state as they participate in Free Comic Book Day.

The event will celebrate the 14th Free Comic Book Day that the HSPLS has participated in, a worldwide celebration on the first Saturday of every May. Comic book shops and libraries have given away millions of free comic books over the past 13 years.

Library patrons who show their valid HSPLS card will receive a free comic book at the participating locations while supplies last. While the selection may vary from library to library, each library will have a variety of comic books for all ages. Some popular titles include: “Avengers,” “Pokemon,” “Attack on Titan,” “Teenage Mutant Ninhja Turtles,” and “Secret Wars.”

Free Comic Book Day has been sponsored by the Friends of the Library of Hawai’i, Gecko Books & Comic, and Collector Maniacs.


For additional information, visit the HSPLS website or call one of the hosting libraries: Hilo Public Library at 933-8888, Kailua-Kona Public Library at 327-4327 and Thelma Parker Memorial Public & School Library at 887-4327.
