We thank everyone who has donated to the campaign and supported GNLM from the very start. However, the funding of the library was only the beginning and still have a rather long way to go. These graphic novels will be available for both adults and children to read, use them for educational purposes and flair their imagination. We are now in need of volunteers to help conserve and cater for the collection as well as to help those using it both for entertainment and educational purposes – volunteers to work at the public library in the graphic novels section. We have alrady started to recieve some of the books mentioned in the list above. These are/will be available for viewing on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/GraphicNovelsLibraryMalta/ which can be then be borrowed once they are transferred to the graphic novels section at the Public Library in Floriana later this year. In the meantime, we will continue posting updates on the books we receive, news and events which we will organising or taking part in. The GNLM Committee
