Aims:

To have a place where educators or interested parties can meet and discuss topics of interest while connecting and engaging people with similar interests.
To create a space to share thoughts.
To be a resource to teachers, parents, academics, etc…. aiding people to better understand the comics culture and how they can use comics to educate or teach skills that are essential to a National Literacy framework.
To promote local artists who want to collaborate with us in creating a market for comics, films and art produced locally.
To organise workshops to students and educators alike on how comics, films, arts, literature can be used as an educational tool in any related subject.

In the summer of 2016 a number of comics and graphic novels were bought and donated to the Central Public Library in Floriana. A section was created at this library to provide room to the comic book medium in their Junior’s library. We as GNLM curate this collection making sure to guide purchases of new comics and organize events to promote the use of the collection.
