The Contra Costa County Library is celebrating Free Comic Book Days from August 16-21. The week-long, all ages event brings the comic book industry and the Library together for a series of programs and giveaways to celebrate all that is comics.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Free Comic Book Day. Usually held the first Saturday in May, it was postponed this year due to COVID-19 and rescheduled for this summer.
