Jeremy Yates (he/they) is a maker, visual storyteller, D&D player and lifelong Disney fan. He is also one of two Marketing Specialists with the Community Relations and Marketing department at Jacksonville Public Library. When not at work, they enjoy spending time in a galaxy far, far away through Star Wars audiobooks, movies and TV shows. Or you’ll find them binge-watching other fantasy and sci-fi shows, playing Pokémon Go or just spending quality time with his equally-geeky partner Andrew and their extremely food-motivated Border Collie, Watson.

Free Comic Book Day

But what do you do when all those free comics have been given away? Get free comics at your library, of course!
