KAPOW! Batman swag on the Quad!

Albertsons Library is not the only institution celebrating a birthday this year. Batman has us beat by a full 25 years. The cowled crusader first appeared in a DC comic in 1939, and has since grown to be, as Warner Brothers claims, “the single most successful film franchise in history,” with additional appearances on TV series, in video games, and publishing and merchandise.

We’ll be celebrating Batman’s birthday on Wednesday, July 23rd from 11am on the Quad as various Bat Girls and mini Batmen hand out swag bags. With limited quantities available, it’s a good idea to get there quickly! If you miss it, or need an additional Batman fix you might check out these resources available at the library:
