Free Comic Book Day Library Partner Program
Nov 13, 2018
Thank you for reaching out regarding your interest in becoming a Free Comic Book Day 2020 Library Partner.
Due to the number of requests from libraries, and with the limited number of comics available, we urge you to work with a local comic shop near you if possible. To find a shop, you can use the Comic Shop Locator service here:www.comicshoplocator.com and look for a store that carries our “School/Library Partner” icon as a good store to contact.
If there’s not a shop within a reasonable distance to your library or you can’t find a shop to partner with, you can complete the following survey to request FCBD titles and to ensure we have your correct shipping information.
Shortly after you submit the enrollment form, we will contact you regarding acceptance into the program, as well as the quantity of comic books you will receive. If your information is not inputted on the form by then, we cannot provide comics or promotional materials to you.
The enrollment period for Free Comic Book Day 2020 has officially ended. You can still partner with a local comic shop in your area to receive comic books to give out to your patrons. The enrollment form for Free Comic Book Day 2021 will be available in December 2020.
The below guidelines may answer most questions about what the program includes. However, if you have any questions not covered here or would like more information on the program, please email email@example.com.
2020 Program Guidelines
As a partner in this program, there are some guidelines we expect all participants to fulfill:
- Continental US Only: Please note that we can only supply comics and promotional materials to locations in the continental U.S.
