The Carolina Manga Library is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in the Southern United States.
Founded in 2013, the Library was started to promote the use of graphic novels, comics, and Japanese manga as genuine tools for improving literacy. The Library travels to conventions, book festivals, schools, and other libraries to set up free reading rooms of graphic novels. These reading rooms are free to enter and visitors have unrestricted access to over 5000 separate books from all genres and reading levels.
The volunteer staff is comprised of professional librarians, writers, artists, costume designers and other graphic novel enthusiasts. They generously give their time and efforts to be “weekend warriors” for literacy.
