Batman Day is a global celebration to honor the legacy of the iconic Super Hero. Every year on the third Saturday in September, we celebrate Batman and the storytelling of his life through comic books and movies. This year the celebration falls on September 17th.

The first Batman Day was officially on July 23, 2014 to make sure it coincided with Comic-Con International in San Diego that year. Batman’s 75 year anniversary was celebrated at Comic-Con by selling Batman merchandise.

Celebrate by reading some Batman comic books or easy readers. Here are some available at the library!
