Batman’s 75th Anniversary Celebration at Albany Public Library branches

BatmanThis year marks the 75th anniversary of the birth of Batman! We love comic books and graphic novels, and we are celebrating this cool event in geek culture with some fun programs featuring the Dark Knight:


Our very own comics expert and all around smart and awesome guy, Gene Kannenberg, will present a highly illustrated look back at the Caped Crusader's many pop culture incarnations over the past 75 years. All ages, but might be best for kids in grades 3 and up, teens, and adults. You have two opportunities to check it out:

Thursday, October 23 | 4-5PM | Howe Branch
Friday, October 24 | 4-5PM | Pine Hills Branch

Also at our Pine Hills Branch, we've got some fun activities for kids and teens:


Do you have what it takes to decorate the perfect cupcake that only the Dark Knight and his arch nemesis, the Joker, would love? We'll have two teams, Batman and Joker, and our very own Scott, Mary Beth, and Daniel will be our judges. The winning team gets a Batman prize, and the winning cupcakes will be served at Gene's presentation on Friday! Ages 11-17.

Thursday, October 23 | 4-5PM | Pine Hills Branch
Register: (518) 482-7911 x230


Watch this classic Batman animated feature to celebrate the Dark Knight's 75th! We'll have snacks, drinks, and Batman loot. All ages.
