The SFSC Library will celebrate Batman Day on Friday, Sept. 14, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., on the Highlands Campus, Avon Park.

The annual celebration of the iconic superhero and all things Gotham will feature graphic novels, games, crafts, and a Gotham-themed photo booth. Batman Day is a yearly event organized by DC Comics, and the SFSC Library has participated for the last three years.         

“Batman Day is a great unifier,” said Claire A. Miller, SFSC librarian and event coordinator. “Whether you read the comic books, watched the cartoons, or saw the latest blockbuster movie, Batman, Robin, and the rest of Gotham are fun to be excited about.”

The SFSC library’s preparations this year include craft projects, a photo booth, and a brand new component: an interactive game where you can play Batman trying to solve a mystery in Gotham.           

“It’s sort of an analog choose-your-own-adventure game with physical clues,” Miller said. “You get to play Batman, and, if you can solve the mystery, you get a prize. Because everyone wants to be Batman for a little while.”

The SFSC Library is on the second floor of Building Y on the Highlands Campus.
