Graphic novels can be so many things: a fun, lighthearted option for leisure reading; a serious examination of a place, a time, or an event; or even a deep expression of a person's lived experience. The combination of text and visual art can produce a reading experience unlike any other. This guide is designed to help you find graphic novels at Middlebury libraries, whatever kind of experience you're looking for.
Most of our graphic novels can be found in the graphic novel browsing collection, near the front of the first stacks on the main floor of Davis Family Library.
Some other graphic novels may be shelved in the stacks alongside other works on the same or a related topic. If you're having trouble finding something, ask us! And if there's something you think we should have in our graphic novel collection but don't, let us know!
