2009 Year-End Report

The Schulz Library at The Center for Cartoon Studies is now in its fifth year of operation, and our collection has grown to 8000 books.  These include 1,358 graphic novels, 713 books of comic strips, 618 books of manga, 457 books from the super hero genre, and 289 European bande disinee.

The Schulz Library is also a great source for scholars, with over 200 books about comic lining our shelves.  This summer celebrated cartoonist Jules Feiffer used the Schulz Library for his research during his Montgomery Fellowship at Dartmouth College.

As our collection has grown, so has library patronage.   For our students, alumni, staff and faculty, the Schulz Library is a valuable tool for research and creative development.

Recently the library purchased a Sony eReader and an Amazon Kindle, and loaded them with choice books and graphic novels (including our own Lucy Knisely’s French Milk).  We encourage our students to explore these new devices, which are available for check-out.

This summer we launched the Schulz Library Blog.  Throughout the week our library staff and faculty post essays, reviews and news.

We at CCS are proud of the Schulz Library’s progress, progress that would be impossible without the support of our many donors, advisors and supporters.  We’d like to offer you our heartfelt thanks, and hope you will continue participate in our library’s growth.  We are always seeking book donations.  If you would like to donate books, please send them to:

Here’s to another year of great books and good reading!

  1. Congratulations, Schulz Library!

    To give an idea on how much the collection has grown- when I stopped working there in June of 2007, there collection held just over 3,000 cataloged items.

    Thanks guys!

  4. Does that include individual comic books, or just bound volumes? Either way, keep up the good work!

  5. sturmreader

    That does not include individual comic books.

    And for all those wondering, CCS did not hire professional models for that photo shoot. Those are real live librarians.

  6. I’d love to visit there someday! It really is the Hicksville library.
