From Diamond Bookshelf:
There are a couple of options for libraries who would like to hand out comics for Free Comic Book Day:
The first option is to partner with a local comic shop. If you don’t have a shop in mind or aren't sure which shops are in your area, see the Comic Shop Partners page on this site, which will direct you to the Diamond Comics' Comic Shop Locator Service and explain our School & Library Partner icon.
For detailed tips on finding or approaching a shop for potential partnership, see our How to Work with Your Local Comic Shop article which was published in the BookShelf print magazine issue #14.
If you're looking to order Free Comic Book Day comics from a shop, it's important to keep in mind that retailers order their FCBD issues and promotional items in January, so the sooner you can contact them and let them know what you’re looking for, the better.
